Barbara Diepenbrock started this petition to South Elgin IL Board of Trustees

We, the undersigned citizen's of South Elgin, IL., desire that responsible backyard chicken ownership be an allowed freedom within the South Elgin Village boarders.  We ask that the village trustees of South Elgin align it's 23,000 citizens with our neighbors who are allowing their citizens to care for chickens.

We believe that small-scale chicken keeping is healthy, educational, requires little space and is a sustainable way to feed and enrich our families. Besides making great pets, hens provide us with fresh eggs, pest control and encourage local sustainable living. The ability to raise chickens offers educational opportunities for our children in a plethora of ways.‎

Naperville, Saint Charles, Bartlett, Batavia, Elgin, Lemont, North Riverside, Countryside, Westmont, Joliet, Palos Hills, Palos Park, Tinley Park, Orland Park, Homewood, Homer Glen, Oak Lawn, La Grange, Downers Grove, the entire city of Chicago, and even unincorporated Cook County are just a FEW of our neighbors that allow their citizens to have backyard chickens.

Thank you for your respectful support and understanding.
