The Town of Huntington is ready to join the growing number of Long island municipalities trying to make it harder for sex offenders to live within their borders.  The proposed regulations would ban the highest-risk Level 2 and 3 sex offenders from owning or living in accessory apartments in the town, and restrict offenders from living within a quarter-mile of schools, parks, beaches, playgrounds, day camps and day care centers.  The town would be the Island's first to allow its residents to access a computer-generated map that tracks the residency of sex offenders and the town would use the, which pinpoints where its Level 2 and 3 sex offenders live, and where they can't, to enforce the law.
