bicycle-2024675_1280

Bicycles, skateboards and other similar modes of transportation are no longer allowed on the sidewalks in Spring Hill’s downtown area. 

At the Aug. 9 City Council meeting, Ordinance No. 2018-12 was approved, determining the use of bicycles, skateboards, coasters, roller skates, roller blades and other similar devices a public nuisance on the sidewalks of Main Street downtown. 

“The Governing Body finds that the use of such devices on the public sidewalks in the downtown area creates a hazard to the physical safety of the general public due to the limited setbacks between the sidewalk and the downtown structures fronting the public sidewalks; the inherent hazard of such devices in close proximity to pedestrians in the limited space of the public sidewalks in the downtown area and the density of pedestrian uses on the public sidewalks.”

The ordinance addresses the area of Main Street between Hale and Nichols streets.
