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