Ojai city officials do not foresee changes to what is currently allowed at the Ojai Skate Park, despite a recent state law designed to expand uses including bicycles and non-motorized wheelchairs.
The issue of liability was part of Assembly Bill 1146, which was signed into law by Gov. Jerry Brown in mid-August and takes effect Jan. 1, 2016.
“Now that Assembly Bill 1146 has been signed into law, all people who wish to use skate parks with all-wheeled non-motorized devices will be able to utilize the great parks California’s cities and counties have to offer,” said Assemblyman Brian Jones (R-Santee), the bill’s author. “The bill will also provide local governments the ability to allow devices other than skateboards to be used without fear of litigation.”
