Sex Offender Restrictions Tightened Within Santa Clarita

Convicted sex offenders who choose to live in the city of Santa Clarita will have to pay extra close attention to their home’s location, after the city council voted unanimously to restrict where they can live.

Current law forbids serious registered sex offenders from living within 2,000 feet of schools, parks and other areas where children regularly congregate.

But in November of 2006, California voters passed Prop 83, which allowed local governments to further restrict the residency laws for sex offenders.

After waiting for conflicting legislation to be cleared up, City staff was able to craft this new ordinance, which also forbids sex offenders from living within 2,000 feet of trails, paseos, and open space within the city.

Los Angeles County has already passed a similar ordinance governing the unincorporated areas for the Santa Clarita Valley. 

Since the state law was not passed until November  2006, any registered sex offender who’s current residency is now in violation of the city ordinance, but who moved there before prop 83 was passed will not be forced to relocate. Any sex offender who established residency after November 8th, 2006 must comply.

The ordinance will not become official until it is passed at a second reading in two weeks.
