A measure to institute a curfew on wilderness areas and public parks may be considered by the Glendale City Council. Residents are complaining that late-night teen parties are "leaving a mess and endangering the community by smoking and building camp fires," reports CBS Local.

The curfew -- in effect from 10:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m. -- would go include areas like hiking trails, hillsides, playgrounds, public parks and recreation areas. The matter goes before the city council Tuesday, notes CBS Local.
