LANCASTER – The Lancaster City Council Tuesday approved an ordinance that imposes restrictions and regulations upon registered sex offenders in addition to those imposed under state law.
Specifically, the new ordinance prohibits registered sex offenders:
- From living within 2,000 feet of any school, park or day care center.
- From living at a residence or hotel/motel/inn where another registered sex offender already lives (with a few exceptions).
- From being within 300 feet of a school, day care, park or bus stop near a park, playground, public library, public museum, crisis center or shelter, arcade, youth sports facility and amusement park, where children are present (with a few exceptions).
- From decorating their homes or answering their doors to trick-or-treaters on Halloween. (Read the Ordinance No. 981 here.).
