The West Chester "Footloose" Ordinance

#WestChesterFootloose

WEST CHESTER, PA -- The Borough of West Chester, Pennsylvania passed an ordinance on October 18, 2016 that outlaws singing, dancing, acting, reading, juggling, magic, mimes and more. Unlike some "busking ordinances", this ordinance will criminalize these activities for every person.

BUSKING (OR PERFORM) -- includes, but is not limited to, the following activities: acting, singing, playing musical instruments, pantomime, juggling, magic, dancing, reading, puppetry, sidewalk art (working with non-permanent, water-soluble media, i.e., chalk, pastels, or watercolors directly on the pavement), and reciting.

For instance, if you allow a 5-year-old to color with chalk on the sidewalk without a license, you both will be breaking the law.

If you obtain a license to perform music and kids start dancing, they will be breaking the law. If you write music without a license and kids start dancing, you all will be breaking the law.

Should you and your friends attend a peace rally or sporting event and sing the "Star Spangled Banner", you will be breaking the law.

If you read the First Amendment, you will be breaking the law. For that matter, if you read the busking ordinance, you will be breaking the law.

Many performances are even banned if you have a permit. Under no circumstances can you read within a 100 feet of a library. Choirs are banned from singing within 100 feet of a church. No pantomime or magic is allowed near a hospital.

Two businesses (Penn's Table Restaurant and Malena's Vintage Boutique) along with the West Chester Business Improvement District (BID) appear to be behind the illegal passing of the unconstitutional law. Concerned citizens are boycotting these establishments.

NEWS:
West Chester Borough appears to have adopted the original draft busking ordinance despite public hearings, debates and votes to the contrary. On February 23, 2017, West Chester Borough published "Chapter 80: Peddling and Soliciting; Handbills and Posters; Busking -- Article III. Busking". The Borough's legal council stated many changes had been made, including:

However, the new ordinance was not advertised and was incorporated into Borough Code without incorporating the voted upon changes.
