                     § 7-723 Limitations on exclusions of natural persons. No disposition reached or order issued pursuant to an action brought under this chapter in relation to a public nuisance may exclude any natural person from any property for more than one year, unless the corporation counsel can demonstrate through clear and convincing evidence that unique circumstances exist such that a greater period of exclusion is required to abate the applicable public nuisance. In no case shall such period of exclusion exceed three years.

§ 2. This local law takes effect 60 days after it becomes law.
