Worcester County Proposed Poultry Bill

177

Worcester County may soon join Somerset and Wicomico County in adopting new poultry farm legislation. The proposed bill will change 50-years of regulations. The new bill calls for 200 foot setbacks of chicken houses and limiting those houses to eight for each piece of land. It would also require a buffer of vegetation between the houses and neighbors. A public hearing on the bill will be held on April 25.
