– Mayor Parker supports Hens!

Posted by cjkrebs on January 15, 2013

Folks, we’ll be on Channel 13 tonight as they cover our activities during public session today.


Following our 3 min presentation, council commented for 20+ minutes on the topic. Mayor Annise Parker said she’d cast her vote in support of urban hens, and we have favorable reception from a number of other officials.

We will be meeting with BARC next week to discuss their draft proposal… we hope that we can find common ground and it can move on to other stakeholder groups for review, and be in front of Council for discussion again by March!

A big thanks to all of our volunteers and supporters who have been integral in getting us to where we are today! Thank you!
