After the December 1 meeting I was told that the city does allow for chickens, but only for homeowners that can place the chickens 150 feet from their home. This may have been realistic 80 years ago, but this distance needs to be re-evaluated as we plan for a greener city.

More marked bike paths on the streets would encourage Alexandria residents to get out and get in shape as well as help the environment. This can't be an expensive project-the City just needs to paint the delineation on the pavement. Otherwise, we are afraid to bike on the street because some drivers are reckless, and it is also prohibited from riding on the sidewalks. This is one little thing that could have a great impact on the life of the City's residents and the environment at the same time.
