Restore Sidewalk Space For All; End the "One Hour of Free Speech and Get Going" Rule - by Robert Norse
Item #10 on the 2:30 PM Santa Cruz City Council Agenda finalizes an ordinance which requires all performers, vendors, tablers and solicitors to restrict themselves to less than 2% of the Pacific Avenue sidewalk. Setting up these small static “performance pens” is abusive and unnecessary. Instead, end the "Forbidden Zones." They take up more than 99% of the total sidewalk area on Pacific Avenue—and more in other business districts. End the virtual Ban on traditional innocent Santa Cruz ...

"Get Out" Anti-Homeless Law...With Phony "Appeal" Process at Afternoon Council 11-18 - by Robert Norse
City Council is set to exponentially expand a "Stay from Parks and Other Public Areas" law passed last year (MC 13,08.100). This law allows immediate Stay-Away orders from all parks and many other public areas (for one day). This happends at the whim of a police officer or ranger once an infraction of any kind is issued.
