Huntington Beach City Council Approves Nudity Ban
HUNTINGTON BEACH, July 17, 2007 (KABC-TV) (KABC) -- The city of Huntington Beach has taken steps toward changing a city law on nudity.
On Monday night, the city council unanimously approved an ordinance that would ban nudity in public.
The move was prompted by a local resident who lived in a house on Walnut Avenue, where he stood naked in full view of the public.
He has since moved.
Under current law, you can walk down the street without any clothes, as long as it's not for sexual gratification.
Steve Munoz, Huntington Beach Resident: "I think what goes on behind closed doors should stay behind closed doors as the old adage says."
Michael Sturrock, Tourist: "It's funny. If the guy wants to be naked let him. It's up to you if you look or not isn't it."
A final vote will be taken in August.
