Fla. Homeowners Group Wants to Ban Playing Kids

As the temperatures warm up, many children will be heading outside to play. But if one Florida group has it's way, they will never make it out the front door.

A homeowners association in Edgewater, Fla. is trying to pass a ban on children playing outside in the association's townhouse complex.

The proposed ban limits everything from running around, playing tag, and even riding bicycles.

The written rule says no playing can take place in common areas, driveways or even in the front and back yards of the units. If children are caught playing in those areas, their parents could be fined $100.

Shonna Magee lives in the complex with her two children.

"They're going to have to get that money out of me because that's not going to happen. They can ticket me all they want. My kids are going to play," she said.

Amy Keller is also a member of the homeowners association.

"I don't think you should take the right away to ride your bike and play kickball and yell and scream outside," Keller said.

According to residents, if the proposed ban passes, there will be an area in which kids will be allowed to play.

The homeowners association is still in the process of finalizing the rules and bylaws of the proposal. A vote is scheduled to take place April 27.
