Zoning Revisions Committee Urban Agricultural Meeting Rescheduled to September 14

The Zoning Revisions Committee announces this schedule change:

Due to a scheduling SNAFU we will be re-scheduling the ZRC Urban Agricultural Meeting to Monday, September 14 at 7 PM in Hearing Room 18 at Northampton City Hall.

The change has us meeting a day earlier.

The preliminary election being held on the 15th made this change necessary. Sorry for the inconvenience. We look forward to everyone’s input and participation.

As noted in a previous announcement:

Our agenda is very brief but likely require further discussion and another meeting.

  1. First and foremost, backyard chickens. We would like to discuss increasing the number of allowable birds and explore ways to modify regulations around chickens in urban settings.

  2. If the chicken issues can be adequately resolved, we would like to begin discussion around other livestock. Goats have specifically been mentioned.
PLEASE USE THE BACK DOOR OF CITY HALL! The front door will be locked.
