Orange County Upcoming Parks Ban Repeal Hearings

Huntington Beach (May 19, 2014)
Consideration is requested whether to repeal Ordinance No. 3926 prohibiting registered sex offenders from entering City parks due to a Court of Appeal decision invalidating an identical ordinance.

Meeting Agenda
Summary of Parks Restrictions in Orange County as of 4/29/2014

Fullerton (May 20, 2014)
At the May 6, 2014 meeting, the City Council directed staff to receive and analyze recommendations from a Fullerton citizen. Staff and the City Attorney have been in communication and received recommendations from this citizen. After reviewing the recommendations, it is the City Attorney’s opinion that the recommendations are very close to the recommendations outlined in the original May 6, 2014 agenda materials, and similar to the draft ordinance and municipal code revisions prepared in anticipation of City Council action

Christ! Just how far are they going to take stupid? The state supreme court ruled against these kind of presence restrictions, making them illegal. So rtepeal it already and stop wasting time!

These two hearings are interesting…

FV: This agenda item was continued two weeks ago because the council wanted to give one individual resident a crack at re-writing the law. One would have thought they have legal staff for that, but whatever. Now, two weeks later, staff suggests that the citizen’s effort are substantially congruent with their original analysis and re-write. Again, whatever.

HB: The initial discussion was one of the more toxic ones. One walked away with the impression of how unbecoming of elected officials in a democracy. The approval was not unanimous, but only because there was disagreement about including the waiver option or not. Subsequently, the ordinance was revised to add in the waiver option. Now they are addressing this for the third time and most likely ending up exactly where they started. Efficient government – NOT.

The summary provided by city staff is very handy. Thanks for doing the homework for the CA RSOL litigation team!

From that list it would appear that the City of Mission Viejo is in dire need of getting slapped with a lawsuit. Their City Attorney is practically begging for one….

Add Yorba Linda to that list.

(Right next to the article announcing the preliminary hearing for former Santa Ana Councilmember Bustamante on sexual assault charges. He, of course, voted in favor of the parks ban in Santa Ana, currently being sued. Keeping an eye on that one….)

Is there any word about the city of Tustin?
I googled it and it appears that Tustin still has park bans .. but seems like there has been no action that I can find…
