Council decides backyard chicken ban stays in place

July 6, 2011

The fate of “backyard chickens” in Deer Park was sealed when then Deer Park City Council decided to do nothing at its July 6 meeting.
The city council, which heard more support on the concept of allowing residents to raise a small number of chickens in their backyard, refused to overturn a report submitted by the Deer Park Planning Commission that would keep the ban in place.
The planning commission decided that controlling the chicken population would be very difficult for the city’s animal control officer and that the agricultural animals could pose a health problem.
