Princeton Plan Commission calls public hearing regarding chickens

PRINCETON — Want to have a say in the decision-making on chickens and other fowl being allowed in the city limits of Princeton? The Princeton Plan Commission/Board of Zoning Appeals will hold a public hearing to receive comments relating to the appropriateness of allowing chickens, ducks, geese, and other fowl in zoned districts other than an agricultural-zoned district on Tuesday, Nov. 10. The meeting will begin at 5:30 p.m. and will be held at Princeton City Hall, 2 S. Main St. Social distancing and use of masks will be required for this meeting. If occupancy exceeds safe distancing levels, the hearing will be adjourned and rescheduled to be accommodated in a larger facility. Contact Pete Nelson, city clerk, at 815-875-2631 or pnelson@princeton-il.com with any questions or concerns.
