Backyard Chicken Class
The Coon Rapids City Council recently approved an ordinance that allows the raising and keeping of chickens in the city. The ordinance went into effect May 23. A permit process is required to keep chickens on property which includes applying for a permit, paying a fee, providing a site plan and site inspections of the property and coop.
The City has partnered with local chicken grower and instructor, Tom Tidrick, to offer Coon Rapids residents a class on raising backyard chickens. Learn the basics of starting a flock of chickens, including discussion on breeds, general care of poultry and preparing your coop. This class will also cover City Code requirements, including the permit application and inspection process.
