And Another City…

Sorry if we’re wearing everyone out on all the cities who are allowing urban hens… as posted before, 94 of the 100 largest in the USA already do, and many, many smaller cities are updating their ordinances every month.

Here’s one example: http://www.annarbor.com/news/chelsea/ordinance-to-be-drafted-to-permit-backyard-chickens-in-chelsea/

Here’s a quote by Boston mayor Thomas Menino. “I set a goal recently for Bostonians to lose one million pounds this year. One way to accomplish this is to make sure all of our residents have access to fresh, locally grown food,” Menino said in a Feb. 2 news release. “It’s key that our city be rezoned to support Boston’s food revolution and the input of our community is crucial to help our residents now and in the future.”

What a smart mayor! 🙂 Putting his actions where his mouth is when it comes to truly pursuing sustainable, healthy, local food practices. Kudos!!
