CLUCK HIstory: City Planning Board Votes to Oppose Ban on Chickens

Take a trip back in time to April of 1990 when the City Commission was considering banning chickens, apparently in part because one resident had 75 chickens!

Even so, the City Planning Board unanimously opposed the ordinance.

Had the Commission dealt with the particular problem instead of a one size fits all approach, having a few chickens would still be legal today.

We're basically talking about correcting a mistake.

Read the article here on page 42 of the April 16th 1990 Sarasota Herald Tribune.
