The Cuyahoga Falls Planning Commission will discuss a proposed text amendment to the City’s General Development Code to allow chickens in single-family residential districts (R-2, R-3, and R-4) at its meeting scheduled for Tuesday, March 21, at 6 p.m. at the Natatorium.

Chickens are currently permitted as an allowed use in NP-1 National Park and R-R Rural Residential Districts and as a limited use in R-1 Large Lot Residential Districts. The proposed amendment was requested by two members of City Council and was initially discussed and tabled by Planning Commission in September. Residents will have an opportunity to give feedback on the proposed amendment at the meeting.
