City Ordinance Plans to Restrict Alley Use to Combat Crime

A Minneapolis City Ordinance Proposal plans to make miles and miles of Minneapolis alleys off-limits to strangers in an attempt to curtail crime. The proposal prohibits anyone from walking in an alley who doesn't live on that block, who isn't a guest of someone who does, or whose job does not require them to enter the alleys.

Counsel Members claim the Proposal is part of a continued effort to curb vandalism, theft, and drug sales that occur in alleys across the city. Story. . . [Mark Godsey]
