Huntington Ban on Clothes free Swims Protested

Nudists protest being banned from Huntington Beach city gym

In September, that practice came to a halt when City Manager Fred Wilson signed a regulation prohibiting use of the facility and others like it to the nudists, citing that “the exposure unreasonably interferes” with city employees’ abilities to perform their responsibilities during private rentals.

At Tuesday’s City Council meeting, about 15 members of the nudist group showed up to protest the regulation and asked for it to be rescinded.

R. Allen Baylis, an attorney and president of the local group, complained that Wilson “adopted the resolution on his own with no input from the City Council.” Baylis asked either that Wilson rescind the regulation or be directed by City Council to withdraw it.

Wilson said he adopted the regulation because “there were concerns brought to my attention that led to us revisiting the issue.” Wilson added that his intent was to leave the policy in effect, unless directed otherwise by the City Council
