Moorhead, MN (WDAY TV) - Clay County is considering allowing livestock in less rural subdivisions.
At a planning commission meeting tonight leaders were discussing a change to the current policy. Right now, livestock is allowed in rural areas.
A homeowner wants to have chickens in a subdivision. Those lots can be as small as an acre and a half. Commissioners are weighing their options, saying depending on how loud, and what type of livestock it is, it could cause concern.
Tim Magnusson – Clay County Planning Director: “Our definition of livestock covers everything from horses, cattle, to chickens, ducks, geese, pigs. That would be an interesting one.”
The homeowner who prompted the discussions lives near Hawley.
