The proposed law would work in concert with the recently-passed Orange County banning sex offenders from county beaches and parks.
Though all council members agreed to draft the law, some council members were concerned about the scope of the law and whether it would ban sex offenders convicted of minor infractions, such as urinating in public. The law will be drafted by the city attorney, and the city council will then vote whether to pass the proposed law.
The Orange County District Attorney has forcefully spoken in favor of the sex offender ban on county public property and has encouraged Orange County cities to enact their own bans on city public property. The City of Irvine is currently considering whether to ban sex offenders from its parks and public recreational areas.
