DEARBORN – The city has made an amendment to it’s Nuisance Code to outlaw outdoor recreational activities such as basketball, soccer and football on residential properties between the late evening and early morning.
The code added to the ordinance states “Recreational activities in residential areas. Noise generated by outdoor recreational activities (e.g. , basketball, tennis, hockey) shall be prohibited in residential areas between the hours of 10:00 p.m. and 7:00 a..m.”
The city had apparently received numerous complaints over the summer of teens and young adults engaging in outdoor sports during evening hours, upsetting neighbors who were attempting to sleep.
An increase of such activities also occurred during the holy month of Ramadan, when residents tend to stay up late in order to eat sahoor before going to bed.
Before the amendment was passed at this week’s city council meeting, Councilman Mike Sareini expressed concerns regarding the severe punishment that came with breaking the code.
Originally, the city was looking to charge residents with a misdemeanor, along with a $500 fine if laws were broken and outdoor sports were played between the prohibited hours. Sareini expressed concerns that the ordinance would most likely target teens and young adults who would have difficulty obtaining jobs or applying for college with a misdemeanor on their record.
The council went on to agree that the code would be handled in a “progressive crime” manner, where a resident would receive a civil infraction on first offense, along with a $100 fine. Any further offenses from the same resident would then result in a misdemeanor charge along with a $500 fine.
Obama’s rampant Islamic immigration, legal and illegal, no jobs, high birth rates and staggering welfare outlays play a role too.
