La Mirada : Skateboard Ban Considered

December 03, 1987

If the City Council has its way, skateboarders will have to give up their wheels in the vicinity of La Mirada City Hall.

Concerned that skateboarders are frightening pedestrians and damaging public property, the council has given unanimous preliminary approval to an ordinance banning skateboard and bicycle use on posted city property. City Manager Gary Sloan said certain locations that are experiencing problems would be posted, such as Garden Hill and Windermere parks, and the area around city hall.

Pedestrians have complained about skateboarders scooting between city hall and the library, Sloan said, and park buildings have been damaged by flying skateboards.
