Backyard Chickens of Lee county is seeking to legalize Urban Chickens (hens only) for Lee county citizens.

We strongly believe that the right to food and food security are 2 of the most important issues we face today as a society.

https://www.flsenate.gov/Session/Bill/2019/00082 : States:

Vegetable Gardens; Prohibiting local governments from regulating vegetable gardens on residential properties except as otherwise provided by law; specifying that such regulations are void and unenforceable, etc.

Effective Date: 7/1/2019

Backyard Chickens of Lee county strongly believes that we need to legally have the right to more food security and urban chickens are a way to obtain just that!

The City of Fort Myers and the City of Bonita Springs have their own backyard chicken ordinances that allow them if you live in those areas.

Backyard Chickens of Lee County, 

Hereby petitions the Board of County Commissioners to Amend the Land Use Code to allow backyard chickens in all residential zoned areas of the county.  

Lifting the overburdening zoning restrictions on property owners and removing the governments interference on individual food security.  

Please sign our petition to support this important cause, and email your county commissioners to tell them that You Support Backyard Chickens in Lee County! 

Together we can achieve more freedom and food security!
