Cloquet: Residents may soon be able to raise chickens within city limits
Now to Cloquet where there has been an update on the proposed Chicken ordinance. A few months ago we told you about community members who were calling on the city council to allow residents to raise chickens within city limits, now the council is taking action. The city planning commission has moved forward with a proposed change to the zoning ordinance that would allow residents to raise chickens. The ordinance change would come with some requirements. Chicken owners would not be able to raise chickens for slaughter or meat and would need the approval of neighbors within 100 feet of their property.
