Can local city/county government dictate when (time) a citizen is allowed to be on public property?
Thank you for using JustAnswer!

The short answer to your question is, yes, the government can set reasonable time, place, manner restrictions so that as they are reasonably related to a compelling government interest (e.g., not disturbing the peace after nightfall).

You cannot direct your frustration to the resident who has allegedly complained of the noise. The policy about when the basketball courts can be used is set by the PSA. Their policy is reasonable and is one that is in place in thousands of communities throughout the country.

Best wishes! I hope that you find this information to be helpful and this answer to be ACCEPTable!
