At Blacksburg Town Council’s Tuesday, August 30, Quarterly Work Session, we will discuss Back Yard Hens. We hope to accomplish two goals in this discussion:

1. Does Town Council wish to investigate expanding back yard hens to areas of town where they are not currently allowed?

2. If the answer is yes – to simply investigate – we will review with staff the priorities Town Council set earlier and see where this issue fits into that list. The Planning Department has many issues on their plate.

The meeting will begin at 2:00pm in the Blacksburg Motor Company. This item will be the first on the agenda to allowing interested parties to listen to discussion. Since this is a work session, there will be no public comment on the agenda. (Many citizens have already commented publicly on this issue).

If you have questions or comments, please email All Council members will receive your correspondence.
