(b)No person shall ride, use or otherwise operate or propel a skateboard on any public right-of-way, roadway, pavement, parking lot or sidewalk located within the following area: Beginning at a point of the extension of the north curb of 2nd Street to the centerline of the westernmost Southern Pacific railroad track; then southerly along the centerline of the westernmost Southern Pacific railroad track to an extension of the southernmost east/west building line of 130 G Street; then westerly along that building line extension to the south east corner of 130 G Street; then northerly along the east building face of 130 G Street to the point of beginning.
