Come November, people in Richardson, TX will be voting on a new ordanance for registered sex offenders and where they can live. The debate is whether or not the boundary should be after 1000 feet of the "premise where children commonly gather" or after 2000 feet.
If you spread it out past 2000 feet, you limit many many areas as Richardson has many parks and schools. Either way the vote goes, my immediate area is "safe", but if they only need to be 1000 feet away, part of the southern part of my community would be a place of interest.
Overall, right now, the number of sex offenders in Richardson is down to 38 from the earlier number this year of 43. Only 5 reside in the panhandle of Richardson, and this is the main area it's being fought to keep the distance at 2000 feet.
Come November, we'll see how it's passed!
