Forest Park may curb street hoops




The Cincinnati Enquirer

        FOREST PARK — Sept. 16 is the earliest that council members could approve new restrictions for children and young adults who play basketball in the middle of residential streets.

        A proposed ordinance, which was discussed by council members on Monday, would ban property owners from putting portable basketball hoops, skate ramps, soccer nets and other recreational equipment in the middle of public streets and sidewalks.

        If notified by the city, violators would have 24 hours to remove the equipment from the public's right-of-way or risk a minor misdemeanor charge and up to $100 in fines.

        The Sept. 16 session will begin at 8 p.m. at City Hall, 1201 W. Kemper Road.
