North Port’s Planning and Zoning Advisory Board today voted down a proposed ordinance that would have allowed up to six chickens per property in residential areas across the city. According to the North Port Sun, the ordinance would have set standards for the size of movable chicken coops built on residential properties, specified setbacks, and banned the slaughter of chickens and the sale of fresh eggs at homes or on street corners. A similar ordinance is in effect in the city of Sarasota.
