WHAT: Will attend the Yorba Linda City Council meeting today in support of enacting a City Ordinance to create a child safety zone in city parks to further protect children from registered sex offenders. This will be the first reading of the ordinance. The Council will discuss whether Yorba Linda should enact a City Ordinance similar to the County Ordinance proposed by Orange County District Attorney Tony Rackauckas and Supervisor Shawn Nelson (Fourth District) and passed unanimously by the Orange County Board of Supervisors on April 5, 2011. The County Ordinance makes it a misdemeanor for registered sex offenders to enter County recreational areas where children regularly gather. Many other cities have passed similar ordinances and/or are in the process of passing city ordinances.
WHEN: Today, Nov. 15, 2011, at 7:00 p.m.
WHERE: City Hall, 4845 Casa Loma Avenue, Yorba Linda
