The bike path will enhance trail accessibility for residents of South Pasadena, Pasadena and Los Angeles” explained Holden. “It’s a project first proposed by South Pasadena Councilmember Michael Cacciotti and we’ve been working closely with him and the city to make it a reality.”“The award of this nearly half- million dollar grant by the SMMC brings this project one step closer to providing a bicycle/pedestrian connection between the San Gabriel Valley and the city of Los Angeles along the historic Arroyo Seco,” said South Pasadena Councilmember Michael Cacciotti. “For the first time in over half a century, bicyclists and hikers of all ages will soon have an accessible and safe path to recreate and enjoy the natural beauty and wildlife of the Arroyo Seco watershed, thanks, in no small measure, to the efforts of Assemblymember Chris Holden and his staff.”The Arroyo Seco Trail will stretch from the intersection of Lohman Lane at Stoney Drive heading southwest to the South Pasadena city limits. It will travel along the South Pasadena Woodland Nature Park, and the Golf Course, through the parking lots and along the tennis courts ending in Arroyo Park. The trail will have interpretative signage, bird houses, benches, water fountains with pet attachments and other amenities.

Residents consider legal move over sex workers

first_imgRadio NZ News 14 October 2017Family First Comment: Here’s the hypocrisy of Chch Council and the Police…“The council has the Christchurch City Council Public Places Bylaw 2008, used to regulate street-based car window washing, and gave police the power to give instant $150 tickets for offences from 10 August 2017. The police said they could enforce window washing under the Public Places Bylaw because the problem was widespread, there was a high potential for harm for people involved, it was easy to monitor, and the potential for legal challenges were low. Police said they did not see street-based sex workers and window-washing as “similar issues”, according to a council report.”Rubbish!A Christchurch City Council committee this week voted down a proposed bylaw that would limit the areas sex workers can work, and opted instead for a non-regulatory approach.Residents in St Albans, a suburb north of the central business district, have been pushing for regulation for years, but police, the New Zealand Prostitutes’ Collective – and now the council committee – say a bylaw would be unenforceable.The legal argumentsThe Prostitution Reform Act 2003 decriminalised prostitution, and made it legal for sex workers to solicit clients on the side of the street.However, the Local Government Act 2002 allows the city council to implement bylaws which could regulate sex workers.Residents said section 145 of the Local Government Act could be used to help fix the situation in St Albans. It allowed councils to make bylaws for “protecting the public from nuisance”, “protecting, promoting and maintaining public health and safety”, or “minimising the potential for offensive behaviour in public spaces.”Council research found the Auckland and Wellington councils did not use section 145 to regulate street-based sex workers.The council has the Christchurch City Council Public Places Bylaw 2008, used to regulate street-based car window washing, and gave police the power to give instant $150 tickets for offences from 10 August 2017.The police said they could enforce window washing under the Public Places Bylaw because the problem was widespread, there was a high potential for harm for people involved, it was easy to monitor, and the potential for legal challenges were low.Police said they did not see street-based sex workers and window-washing as “similar issues”, according to a council report.Mr Bonis said his lawyers believed the council did have a responsibility under the Public Places Bylaw to regulate street-based sex workers.READ MORE: http://www.radionz.co.nz/news/national/341545/residents-consider-legal-move-over-sex-workerslast_img read more
