Sex offender residency restrictions in Grand Island

429 Signatures Goal: 500

Grand Island, NY currently has no town ordinance restricting where a sex offender can live. With no Town ordinance in place, the only restriction is the state law that states that a level 2 or level 3 sex offender cannot live within 1000 feet of a school. Which means that a convicted child molester can move next door to a playground, daycare center, or public park in Grand Island and they would not be breaking any law. We ask that the Town of Grand Island pass a Town Ordinance that would make it illegal for a sex offender whose victim was a minor to live within a 1/4 mile from a playground, school, park or daycare center. Many towns and villages in Western New York have ordinances like the one we are requesting, and we ask that Grand Island takes immediate action to prevent our Town from becoming a safe-haven for sexual predators. This petition will be delivered to Peter McMahon, Grand Island Town Supervisor, On October 31st 2011. If you support our efforts to keep our children safe, please sign below.
