If anyone has walked by the Clovis Civic Center , you can notice a sign that says, “No bike riding, skateboarding, and no loitering.” I can understand the bike riding or the skateboarding, but how can loitering be illegal in a public place?
To the contrary, benches should be provided for members of the public who want to sit there in front of the Clovis City Hall, for it is a public place and not a private business.
The City of Clovis needs to invite its citizens not only to visit its Clovis City Council meetings, but every day. Clovis city officials need to be more open to both compliments and complaints, not just by email but in person also.
Clovis has lots of history and the administration does everything in official manners. Put down some of those barriers, tear down the sign that says "no loitering" or just put up a fence asking that folks push a buzzer to get in.
