Pasadena : Skating Ban Proposed

April 18, 1993

Merchants in Old Pasadena are calling on the City Council to ban skating and skateboarding in the business district.

"With the sidewalks being so overcrowded, for the safety of pedestrians and Rollerbladers we need a ban," said Jack Smith, president of the Old Pasadena Business & Professional Assn.

"We had a little old lady not so long ago knocked off her heels," he said.

The association sent a letter March 29 to the City Council asking for a ban similar to one enacted in Glendale last year that prohibits skating and skateboarding in its business district.

Smith said business owners on Pasadena's South Lake Avenue are also interested in banning skaters.
