Backyard chickens exist in Revelstoke

City reviving backyard chicken bylaw

The backyard chicken bylaw is back on the City of Revelstoke agenda.

The backyard chicken bylaw is back on the City of Revelstoke agenda following a request put forward by the recently-revived environment committee.

The committee asked council to resurrect the bylaw. Mayor Mark McKee responded by saying the bylaw would be brought to the next administration committee meeting before being presented to council.

He said staff was researching other communities to see what worked and what didn’t.

The backyard chicken bylaw has been nesting for almost two years now. The last reference in the Review archives dates to August 2013, when the city stopped working on an overarching animal bylaw in favour of one that just regulated chickens.

The lack of a bylaw hasn’t stopped anyone from actually purchasing and raising chickens

The Food Security Strategy that was released in February calls for the city to amend its animal control bylaw to allow for chickens, bees and other small livestock in single-family residential zones.
