There are three examples of ordinances that are all very similar. Chief Burgess presented a mock map
of where he felt child safe zones would be. At this time, we do not have anyone living within the 200 feet
of a safe zone. The board liked site specific being addressed in the ordinance. Board would like to move
forward with the ordinance.
