CYPRESS (CBS) — Sex offenders looking to move into Cypress will now have a hard time finding housing.
The Cypress City Council approved a tough new law Monday night, prohibiting sex offenders from living within 2,000 feet of the city’s parks, schools and childcare centers.
Cypress, which is near the 405-605 interchange, has so many parks and schools that the law appears to leave only a tiny corner in the northwest part of the city where sex offenders can reside.
That little corner of Cypress is north of Forest Lawn cemetery, roughly between Bloomfield and Moody Street.
The new law does not apply to the 36 sex offenders already living in Cypress.
