VOLUSIA COUNTY, Fla. -- A neighborhood homeowner's association in Volusia County is causing some controversy after it proposed banning kids from playing outside in their own yards.
Officials at the Persimmon Place subdivision in Edgewater are pushing a measure to ban kids from outdoor playing in the community, unless they have an adult with them at all times.
The proposal would also ban children from skateboarding, playing games like tag, or using loud toys.
Parents in the community say they play to fight against the plan.
"I think it's absurd, I mean how can you tell kids you can't play?", said resident Magee Pareja.
If the proposal passes, homeowners caught breaking the rules will have to pay a $100 fine.
