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

Agenda

  1. Q

    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!

    • Q

      They keep acting like they actually have a choice. If they were upright citizens all this hemmn and hawin wouldn’t be going on.

    (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….)

    • Q

      Hi ocguy:

      Think I should post it? 🙂

      “I am so offended that Santa Ana had a sexual predator in it’s ranks. I have to wonder if any women or little kids are safe from this serial sex offender with 12 counts of sexual depravity. There’s probably allot more victims we don’t know about yet, I just pray none of them are children. I think District Attorney Tony Rackauckas should prosecute this case against Carlos Bustamante personally and hammer this pervert hard! This would have a twofold advantage to little children and women; not only would this get a serial sexual predator off the streets and in prison for a very long time (which is what a sexual pervert like Carlos Bustamante deserves), it could go a long way to redeeming Tony Rackauckas’s reputation after this fiasco he started by going around to different cities urging them to enact presence restrictions for sex offenders without being 100% sure it was constitutional. Unfortunately all these cities got from taking Tony Rackauckas’s advice is allot of costly headaches. I also think Tony Rackauckas should make it a law that all city counsel members in every city in OC be tested to see if they too are sex offenders like Bustamante.”

      I think I’d be kind of funny!!!! I also everyone on this site should post comments expressing outrage that the rule’s of the “good ol boy’s club” are probably going to get Bustamante off the hook; whereas if it was one of us we would never see the light of day again.

    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….

    • Q

      Hi ocguy:

      It’s amazing these cities are spinning their wheels so hard in relation to a pretty much non existent threat. This says allot about these people. No matter what they do they had better be sure it’s not illegal or unconstitutional this time; they should probably start by keeping Tony R and Susan S away from their podium. It’s those two that unleashed this whole mess, and I’ve yet to read about one of these dubiously upright city council members acknowledge this fact/truth. I wonder what their overall crime statistics look like; I’ll bet their greatest fear (RSOs) is very low on the list. If they seek or accept counsel from Tony R or Susan S again then they are fools indeed.

    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…
