Proposed Zoning Change in Chester, CT

Your comments and suggestions to Chester, CT  P&Z regarding the proposed zoning change would be much appreciated.

Please follow the link below and click on the Petition for Amendment to Zoning Regulations. I will attach a PDF of the document for your consideration.

I hope that you will read  and direct this information to the appropriate persons who will find this action of concern.

The Gabriel Foundation has faced a similar situation regarding P&Z three times in our 18 years, but the regulations that we went up against never proposed a complete ban on parrots. TGF has felt the impact of city regulations which ban keeping of roosters on property within city limits; that a person can get a proposal like this to P&Z for a broad spectrum zoning change is alarming.

I thought you should be aware of this proposed regulation. Thank you in advance. Here’s the link:
