Introducing BOMA’s 41.18 School Ordinance Map

The Los Angeles City Council amended Municipal Code 41.18, a law that prohibits encampments from obstructing the public right of way to ban encampments within 500 feet of schools and daycares. 

The amendment expanded the ordinance’s scope of protection. With member buildings all over the City of Los Angeles, it’s important to recognize if you fall within 500 feet of a qualified school or daycare. 

How to Use

To find out if your building is within 500 feet of a school or daycare:

More on 41.18

The anti-camping law 41.18 has been one of the most controversial ordinances that the LA City Council has ever passed and is commonly met with mixed reactions by the public no matter how it is voted on. 

Despite this, the city council has voted to expand the law to include schools and daycares. It previously covered the public right of way protected under it, but it was less far-reaching than it is today.
