At the suggestion of the City Manager, the City Council has decided to hold a Town Hall meeting to get input from the citizens on the chicken ordinance. In preparation for the Town Hall meeting, we are going to meet at the Cedar Roe Library on Thursday, October 14 and Thursday, October 21. Both meetings will start at 6:00.
The Johnson County Extension Council Agricultural Agent, Rick Miller, will speak to us at this Thursday's meeting, October 14th, Cedar Roe Library, 6:00. Please join us if you can. I'm sure he will have really great information for us. We will also be cutting out the paper for making buttons for our group as well as putting together a flyer to hand out.
If you have friends or neighbors that are interested in backyard hens and may have questions, please invite them to this meeting. Rick Miller is a wonderful source of information and is happy to answer questions.
We will be creating an agenda for the October 21 meeting, so if you have any questions, suggestions or just wish to discuss a certain part of the proposed code, please let us know so that we can get it on the agenda.
Please join us for these two meetings to prepare for the November 9th, Town Hall meeting. Please invite any neighbors to join us. Now is the time to gather our supporters and answer any questions that anyone may have.
Roeland Park has a goal to be the "greenest city in Johnson County". Let's help our city take a step towards that goal by adopting a great backyard hen ordinance.
