Our redneck yuppie estblishment needs to justify it's own existence by constantly micro-managing our freedoms.
Encinitas adding to its list of no-skate zones
By: ADAM KAYE - Staff Writer
ENCINITAS ---- In a community with strong ties to skateboarding, eight more city-owned locations may be placed off-limits.
A resolution headed to the City Council on Wednesday would prohibit skateboarding and roller skating at a new public works center on Calle Magdalena, the unfinished Encinitas Community Library on Cornish Drive, and at Cardiff-by-the-Sea Library on Newcastle Avenue. All five Encinitas fire stations also are on the list.
The ban applies to "coasters ... and similar conveyances," as well.
It would protect "the safety of employees and visitors to the facilities and prevent physical damage to these sites," according to a city report.
Some of skateboarding's finest ---- Danny Way, Bucky Lasek and Buster Halterman and others ---- live in Encinitas, where the sport is off-limits at seven city parks and the parking lot at Moonlight Beach.
