If it prohibited tricks on private property, likely yes.Contact the Pa. Civil Liberties Union. On public property--I don't see it being invalid unless it is used to cover non-pedestrian areas such as open spaces used by jugglers, dancers, others.

The commission prevents me from maintaining, removing, or planting trees in the strip of grass between the sidewalk and street in front of my property.

I had a few municipal liens on my home. I paid the court ordered judgement amounts via check. The checks were accepted but I received a letter saying I actually owe more than the lien through the courts and they will not close out the liens until I pay more. Is this legal?
