The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors has recently approved an amendment to the L.A. County Beach Ordinance that will effectively outlaw certain beach activities. The restrictions placed on "Ball-playing" are egregious and should be renounced in their entirely from the L.A. Beach Ordinance. The amended restrictions read as follows: 17.12.430 - Ball-playing restrictions "A. It is unlawful for any person to cast, toss, throw, kick, or roll any ball, tube, or any light object other than a beach ball or volleyball upon or over any beach except any of the following: 1. In an area that may be established and/or designated for such use by the Director. 2. When the person first obtains a permit by the Director to conduct such activity. 3. When using a water polo ball in or over the Pacific Ocean opposite such beach. 4. When using any other object over or in the Pacific Ocean opposite such beach, the person first obtains previous authorization from the Fire Chief or ocean lifeguard to conduct such activity. B. Exception for off-season. The ball-playing restrictions set forth in subsection A shall not be applicable during the period between Labor Day and Memorial Day, provided the inovlved ball-playing activity is carried out in such a manner so as not to endanger any person or property on or near the beach. In no event shall any structure or improvement used for ball-playing purposes be placed on the beach without the previous authorization of heir Director."
