Hello fellow chicken lovers. I live in Torrance & am hoping to get chickens legalized here & other cities. Let me know if you have questions re: city officials or need details re: past/ upcoming meetings. Seems Torrance is warming up to the idea!
What an incredible group of people! Everyone was professional and down-to-earth! I believe the Commission enjoyed our input! Only one person was against it and some of his testimony was inaccurate, such as chickens attracting cockroaches. Everyone was well-prepared and spoke mostly from personal experiences with keeping hens and bees. The Commission has separated the two issues so when it comes before the Council, they will vote on them individually. Great news! I think we should get involved with circulating that petition and help the Commission and Council to realize that just about everyone wouldn’t mind a “return to rural” attitude in our neighborhoods. I want to thank each and every one of you who came before the Commission and spoke in favor of this important issue.
