You can now apply to keep backyard chickens in Coon Rapids. The ordinance, approved earlier this month, took effect May 23.
But before you can build a coop and purchase chickens, you must submit a permit application, permit supplement and site plan along with the appropriate fee to the building inspections department. If you pass the two site inspections, your permit will be issued.
A free class for Coon Rapids residents interested in raising chickens is also coming up June 23.
6-23-16 UPDATE: If you are interested in signing up for the class on the same day, call 763-767-6404. Online Registration is available through June 22.
