CORNING, Calif. - Corning is considering new park rules, the ordinance would restrict people from using the park during certain hours.

Those hours would between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m.

Right now, most parks can be occupied at all hours. The city wants to put a stop to overnight vandalism, and crime.

Not every community member agrees with the overnight closure, some have said teens and kids are responsible.

"Kids do that during the day time too," a resident of Corning said. "If you noticed they tag things and everything else too. Who else is really doing it, some think it's homeless people, I don't."

The ordinance prevents smoking, vaping, and drinking alcohol, among other activities. 

It will be effective 30 days after it is adopted. The city council's first meeting is Wednesday, Oct. 9.
