Backyard Chickens for education in Cape coral Florida

robert peters started this petition to Organizer Robert Peters and
In Cape coral Florida the existing code on record allows for chickens in residential areas for educational purposes (4-h). Recently Cape coral changed its opinion of the language in the code and are now stating that chickens are not allowed. Many people and Children have been affected by this recent decision made solely by one person, the City attorney. No public hearing was held prior to making this decision. As residents of the city and parents of children who have spent countless hours raising these chickens we believe the the current code is established and does convey that chickens are allowed. Our two neighboring cities have a Backyard chicken program and up until this ruling we believe we had one too. We arent asking for loud roosters, we arent asking for rights for commercial raising of chickens. We just want what was intended in the first place by the Code, to be able to raise a limited number of hens for our children's education. Please Sign This petition to allow Hens on cape coral residential properties.
