Get chickens on the block in Nakusp

Many communities in B.C. and elsewhere have amended their bylaws to permit having chickens.

Many communities in B.C. and elsewhere have amended their bylaws to permit having chickens within village, town and even city perimeters.

Some time ago a young student proposed an amendment to Nakusp’s current pet bylaw that would allow keeping a number of chickens. Most communities that have have allowed this have restrictions on the number of chickens and often don’t allow roosters.

I believe that most people in Nakusp who might be interested in keeping chickens within village limits would not have a problem with these regulations.

I would like those who are like minded would contact the village to express their desire. I have done so and have been been told it is still on the agenda.

If more people contacted the village, the process might be expedited. I and many others feel that securing our own food sources is essential in today’s world.

Please make your voices heard.
