Hens in Pimlico - Vote

This vote is for home owners in Pimlico. It is ONE vote per ADDRESS.

If more than one owner/adult lives at the same address, they still only get ONE vote total.

The purpose of this vote is to determine whether or not Pimlico will allow for hens in accordance to the new Berkeley County Ordinance 23-07-42, adopted July of 2023. Information can be found at the below link. The Civic Club has also summarized the Ordinance as seen in the bulleted items below.
