The Board of Trustees approved an ordinance permitting the keeping of backyard chickens effective November 29, 2013. The keeping of backyard chicken hens shall be permitted accessory use to single-family detached dwelling units on lots greater than 5,000 square feet in lot area. Residents must apply for a license which shall be reviewed and approved prior to bringing chickens on site. Residents living within Homeowner Associations are encouraged to speak to their respective HOA prior to beginning the application process as most HOA's do not allow the keeping of backyard chickens.
