Cherokee Tribune – Holly Springs nears decision on backyard chickens

HOLLY SPRINGS — Residents hoping to join in on the growing trend of raising backyard chickens had a victory Thursday night when the Holly Springs Planning and Zoning Commission recommended the city allow small flocks in residential areas.

About a dozen fans of the backyard fowl flocked to the commission’s meeting Thursday and thanked the board for voting 3-1 to recommend that the City Council give the go-ahead to amending Holly Springs regulations to let the birds in. Commission member Donna Davidson was absent.

Several of the hopeful bird owners spoke to the commission in favor of the changes to city code which would allow residents to keep small flocks for food or pet purposes.

Resident Courtney Bailey said more and more residents are turning to backyard chickens for sustainability and to save money.
