Article I Sports Equipment in Rights-of-Way
[Adopted 9-18-2007 by Ord. No. 13-2007]
No person or persons shall place in any public street, right-of-way or on the sidewalk of any public street any fixed or portable basketball net, or backboard or other equipment or apparatus for the playing of basketball or any other sport for which such an apparatus can be used nor shall such equipment or apparatus be placed on private property or in the vicinity of any public right-of-way such that the use of the equipment or apparatus will tend to require any user to be in and about the public right-of-way.
No person shall place, deposit, fix or allow to remain on any utility pole located on any sidewalk, adjacent lands or street any article, including but not limited to basketball hoops or other recreational equipment, in such a manner that the intended use of the article so attached to the utility pole would wholly or partially obstruct and encumber the sidewalk, street, or public right-of-way.
Any person violating the above provisions shall be subject to a warning for the first violation, a fine of $100 for the second violation and a fine not to exceed $250 for each subsequent violation.
There shall be a presumption that the person or persons who have violated these provisions are those who control the private property on which the equipment or apparatus is situated, or if the equipment or apparatus is in a public right-of-way, those who control the private property closest to the equipment or apparatus.
