Basketball Hoops Ordinance
Resolution No. 2013-13, Ordinance No. 2013-428 – Basketball Hoops
The ordinance is effective as of July 4, 2013.
Ypsilanti Township neighborhood watch groups have expressed concern over the placement of basketball hoops at the end of driveways, on lawn extension right-of-ways, and public sidewalks near and on public streets. This poses a hazard to basketball players, motorists, and pedestrians.
Ordinance 2013-428 prohibits the placement of basketball hoops (portable or permanent) on public right-of-ways and public sidewalks. Violation of this ordinance constitutes municipal civil infraction and permits the confiscation of the basketball hoop.
Ordinance 2013-428 does not regulate the placement or use of basketball hoops on private property.
