It will also require a second permit if any object is placed on the sidewalk. This could also affect the homeless. It removes the requirement for written warning and 15 minute delay before making arrests. The meeting begins at 7 PM on Dec. 8 at 2130 M L King Way, 510-981-6900. The meetings are usually quite long. Each person can speak for 2 minutes.
