Allow chickens in City of East Peoria Illinois

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!


We, Citizens of the City of East Peoria, Illinois, hereby petition for the right to own and raise chickens within the City of East Peoria, IL. 

See https//learningstore.uwex.edu/Assets/pdfs/A3908-03.pdf for positive effects of backyard chickens.  

Chickens (HENS) can be beneficial for our citizens. Th ey provide bug control. The provide eggs, which provide a nutritional food source. Even egg shells can provide gardening fertilizer. 

When done correctly,  chickens can co exist peacefully in our backyards. We hereby petition for that right, even if on a trial basis. We agree to regulations governing the keeping of these animals- including inspections & a reasonably small license fee which can be used for animal control enforcement.  

Only City of EP residents sign.  If you are in Sunnyland West of the lights @ Summit & not considered County you are governed by EP.
