On January 17, 2021, in our Annual Members Meeting, one of the members initiated a motion to amend the Declaration of Restrictions to allow up to five chickens, no Rooster, per residential dwelling.
The members voted as follow:
I am thrilled that out of the 221 votes, 76% SUPPORT and WANT members to have chickens in IH, with the limitation of a maximum of five and no Rooster.
Unfortunately, to change the outdated 1973 Deed Restriction, we legally need 200 votes out of the 299 total IH available votes.
Our request can be better conveyed to the 299 total possible votes in IH.
IH lawyer should prepare a suitable document, with the motion to amend the Declaration of Restrictions, to allow “up to five chickens, no Rooster, per residential dwelling .”
This document should be email or snail-mailed by the BOD to each of the 299 voting members of IH.
I hope that IH’s local governing body, being the BOD, realizes that if a YES got 76% of the votes and a NO got 24% of the votes, they have to get involved and serve the members’ wishes.
I am ready to meet and discuss it with any member of our “fresh” 2021 BOD.
I also ask you to support me, contact our BOD members, and motivate them to serve the members’ wishes.
Perhaps having 5 chickens should have been on the agenda, if it was I didn’t see it. I had to leave the meeting before it was even discussed.
