The city will put up signage for a skateboard restriction zone that includes parts of Haynes Bridge Road and Canton and Roswell Streets and Marietta and Church Streets. The new ordinance prohibits skateboards and longboards on those streets, sidewalks, parking decks and surface parking lots. The sporting equipment cannot be used on rails, ramps or steps.
Alpharetta City Council approved the ordinance during a June 15 meeting. Violators could be fined up to $500 and be required to perform up to 20 hours of community service. Parents or legal guardians of minors who violate the ordinance would receive citations and be subject to the penalties.
