Parents Talk: A Ban on Sidewalk Chalk?

Do you consider sidewalk chalk enough of a nuisance to consider banning it from your neighborhood?

If you live anywhere near a neighborhood with children, then you've probably seen the chalky drawings. In decent weather, they cover sidewalks, driveways, curbs and sometimes even your front porch.

Still, no matter how much chalk dust flies, would the drawings be enough for you to want to ban sidewalk chalk?

That's the issue in one Denver, Colo. neighborhood where the homeowners association is trying to curb the use of sidewalk chalk.

According to the story, association members are anti-chalk because in shared spaces or common areas, "anything that offends, disturbs or interferes with the peaceful enjoyment isn’t allowed." Apparently, not all neighbors are down with the juvenile artwork.

What do you think? Would you get behind a ban on sidewalk chalk or is the very idea child's play? Tell us in the comments.
