City Council to Vote on Amended Bill #120534 Tomorrow

Here we go again. If you have the oppor­tu­nity to head down to City Hall tomor­row you should because the amend­ment to the infa­mous Philadelphia Anti Skateboarding Bill is sched­uled to be voted on. Visit Franklin’s Paine for more information.

The new ver­sion of the bill now man­dates sig­nage to enforce, and reduces the $2,000 and 90 days in jail max­i­mum penalty for skate­board­ing on marked pub­lic art, mon­u­ment and memo­r­ial to a max­i­mum $1,000 with no jail time.  While this is a pos­i­tive change, $1,000 would still be the high­est fine for skate­board­ing in the nation.  Note that sec­tion 10 – 200 of the bill on “Ethnic Intimidation and Institutional Vandalism” still car­ries jail time up to 30 days.

  1. Compromise= $200 fine for skat­ing on a memorial/​public art sculpture/​monument with all pro­ceeds going to build free pub­lic skateparks. Deal?
