City of Huntington Beach, California Just Banned Nudist Pool Parties…Time to take action!
The Naturist Action Committee has issued an Action Alert regarding a new administrative rule against nudist pool parties in the seaside city of Huntington Beach, California.
Now in a totally stealthy move, the city passed a new administrative rule that says this facility cannot be rented out for nude events. They did this without seeking approval from or even informing the City Council members. Of course the local community was not informed or given a say in it either.
The events held by NiTOC have been taking place without any issues for the last 8 years. They are totally private and in compliance with the city’s local anti-nudity ordinance, which was passed in 2007.
The city is trying to claim that these nude events restrict public access to their recreational facilities. However they are not trying to ban all private rentals! Anyone can still rent out the pool and gym facilities for a private birthday party or other event that will be closed to the public.
So this new rule is clearly targeting naturists and denying them the same access to these facilities as everyone else.
What you can do to help:
NAC is asking ALL naturists and nudists (and anyone opposed to this new city rule) to contact the City Council members of Huntington Beach as well as the city manager. Huntington Beach is a tourist destination whose local economy relies on out-of-towners visiting and spending money there. So this is an issue affecting both residents and visitors, and you can write in no matter where you live!
NAC is also asking people to attend the local City Council meeting on Tuesday, January 19 at 6pm in Huntington Beach.
Now is the time to take action! Please see the NAC Action Alert page for information about what to write and contact information as well as details about the upcoming council meeting. There you can also read the full Action Alert with more info about this situation in Huntington Beach.
