As you may be aware, basketball hoops are available in a number of types, including in-ground hoops with a concrete base and portable basketball hoops that can be moved and stored. The portable basketball hoops are pieces of movable equipment that can be used either indoors or outdoors. A portable basketball hoop usually consists of a pole, acrylic backboard, brace and a base filled with sand or water.
Portable basketball hoops are not permitted to be stored or used on public streets in the Town of Salina. These hoops not only present a hazard for those playing basketball in the road, it poses danger to motorists trying to navigate the road and the people around it. If you happen to have a portable basketball hoop on the street, the following is likely happen:
A written complaint will be received by the town of Salina codes department
An order to remedy the violation will be sent to the property owner by certified and regular mail. (This is the only notice the property owner will receive.)
The property owner will be asked to move the portable basketball hoop 15 feet back from the edge of the road
If this is not done, the town of Salina highway department will come and remove the portable basketball hoop and it will be destroyed
For everyone’s safety, we hope that the town of Salina is not called upon to investigate the use of portable basketball hoops in the street. So please, let’s play it safe and keep our hoops off the streets.
