City commissioners enacted the measure as part of emergency ordinance approved during a special meeting convened Wednesday, March 16. It addresses public safety concerns related to recent large, disruptive spring break gatherings along Flagler Avenue and other beachside areas.

Exceptions apply to youth who are accompanied by a parent, guardian, or verified supervising adult; married; homeless; traveling with parental consent, while engaged in lawful employment, or to exercise protected First Amendment rights; by exception during special events; responding to an emergency that requires the youth’s immediate attention; or on a swale or sidewalk abutting the place where the youth resides.
