City Council concerning urgency ordinance restricting housing for sex offenders

Alhambra , CA United States

Tonight at 7pm, the Alhambra City Council will consider a measure to amend their current ordinance restricting where sex offenders can live in Alhambra. The new ordinance will eliminate restrictions concerning how far a sex offender can live from schools, parks, and childcare facilities. This provision has been challenged by a lawsuit, and was ruled unconstitutional on a state level in 2015. The ordinance will, however, prohibit sex offenders from living in the same residence.

This has been placed on the agenda as an urgency ordinance, and will go into effect immediately if passed by a 4/5th vote of the City Council.

The City Council will also hand out commendations to the volunteer groups who participated in building a playground at Alhambra Park with the Dodgers and the non-profit KaBOOM! And it will open the process for City elections. This year, there will be races for the 1st, 2nd and 5th District of the City Council and the 4th and 5th District of the Board of Education.

Other business includes a 2nd reading of a specific plan amendment for the Camellia Court development. The consent agenda includes approval of an interim human resources director contract, added work to the HUD street and alley rehabilitation project, since the original work came in under budget, and support of the Keep California Safe Act, in response to the reclassification of certain crimes as misdemeanors due to recent ballot measures like Prop 47 and Prop 57.
