Public Input at Next Planning Commission Meeting

The Brigham City Planning Commission is meeting Tuesday,  March 1st at 6:30pm.  This meeting is open to the public and will be held in the city council chambers (up stairs) at city hall.  I believe in this meeting they will be putting the final touches on the code.  If you would like a peak at the DRAFT of the code please click here: Brigham City Chicken Ordinance DRAFT.  This is a PDF document so you will need Adobe Acrobat Reader to view it.

Since there is discussion in this ordinance about the number of chickens limited to the lot size, I thought I'd give you some resources on chicken tractors.  I know that is an odd sounding term, but it is infact the name of chicken housing that is portable.  These can be used in large enterprises and drug around a farm by a ...yes, tractor.  Or they can be small enough and built on wheels that people can keep a few hens in their back yard and give the chickens fresh grass to eat without destroying their lawn.  Just roll the tractor a few feet away each day or two to a new spot of ground and you are good to go.

Two resources (besides googling for images of 'chicken tractors') that I have found for getting an idea of what these devices are like are the following links:
