LinkedIn Discussion Group: Sex Offender Residency Restrictions Under Fire

Many cities throughout California have adopted very restrictive ordinances as to where sex offenders can live, generally within 2,000 feet of schools, parks, and playgrounds.  This was largely done as a result of Proposition 83, that passed with an overwhelming 70% vote.  But, following a 2015 California Supreme Court ruling deeming the restrictions under Proposition 83 unconstitutional, cities are now being forced to reevaluate and make decisions on whether to repeal or reform their ordinances. Members can share their thoughts about residency restriction ordinances on the Authority’s LinkedIn discussion group page.
