The City of Marshfield is looking into allowing residents to have backyard chickens on their property, but before any decision is made, the Plan Commission is seeking public input. A proposed ordinance would allow up to four chickens on a single-family lot, provided the property owners secure the required license and abide by specific regulations.
At the next Plan Commission meeting on Tuesday, May 16, at 7 PM., in City Hall, members of the Commission will review and consider input gathered from citizens regarding the proposal. The feedback received will help the Commission members provide a recommendation to the City’s Common Council.
“Getting public comment on this topic is vital in this decision, because this will help us gauge resident support for allowing backyard chickens in the city. So, we are opening up an online survey to get clear data to provide the Commission,” said City Administrator Steve Barg.
An online survey is now available through Friday, May 12, 2023, said Tom Loucks, the City’s Communications Director. YOU CAN ACCESS THAT WITH AN EASY CLICK HERE.
