Give feedback until May 3


As the Town reviews this ordinance, your feedback is our first step. There is still time to give your feedback on provisions you agree with as well as what might need to change. Give us feedback using this form. It will be online until 5 p.m. Wednesday, May 3. This feedback will be given to Town Council. If you’ve already submitted a form, please know we have your thoughts, and we’re reading them carefully. If you have new ideas, or something you forgot to mention, please feel free to submit it.  

Tell us about dogs, cats, chickens, bees, or other animals. The Town is also looking for feedback related to licensing requirements; the number and kinds of animals allowed; breed-specific bans; regulations related to pet shops, kennels or doggie daycares; as well as handling activities such as fostering, rescues and feral cats. 

Next steps


Resident feedback will be provided to Town Council and will be taken into consideration regarding changes that may be made to Town Code related to animals. An update to Council is anticipated as early as May.
