American Fork City
Last year the city
passed an ordinance allowing backyard chickens but
HEAVILY restricting them.
This ordinance goes
into effect August 2013, and if enforced, will make chicken ownership very difficult for most people.
We Need Your Help to
get this changed!
are organizing an email campaign to the city council to express our concerns
join us and send an email to the below addresses
your own words let them know your opinion
Here are our concerns:
- The ordinance limits the amount of
chickens you can have to 6 based on your property size.
Solution:We want this increased to at least 10 based on larger property sizes
- The ordinance requires a coop to be
at least 15 feet from any property line and 6 feet from any dwelling.
Solution:We want this eliminated. We feel
that along a fence or under a deck is a natural place to put chickens.
- The ordinance does not allow chickens
to roam outside of the pen or coop.
Solution:We want this changed to allow chickens to roam within a fenced yard.
- In the event that there is a
violation, the ordinance allows for a $75.00 fine to be levied.
Solution:We feel this is unduly high and that the fine should be much less
