Attention Villa Hills Residents:

In a 5 to 1 decision at the December meeting, Council approved an ordinance grandfathering in any existing backyard chicken coops in the City as of December 31, 2021. After this date, no additional coops will be permitted. All regulations regarding the structure, upkeep, and containment of these coops are still in place including those enacted by Animal Control. They must also comply with zoning rules regarding accessory use structures.

Residents with existing coops must submit the address, name of the current resident(s), and a photo of the coop no later than December 31, 2021. These items can be emailed to [email protected] or dropped off to the City Building, at 720 Rogers Road, Villa Hills, KY 41017.  They may be left in the drop box to the right of the main door after hours.  Coops not registered by December 31st and discovered after this date will be ordered removed.
