Councilwoman Beiers continues discussing homeless issues raised at a prior meeting a week ago around the new Downtown Ordinance changes passed at City Council on 2-10 and due to go into effect in a month.

These included expanding the "Forbidden Zones" where peaceful sparechanging, political tabling, sitting, and street performing are banned, banning sitting on a bench (one of the few remaining) for more than an hour, and making three infractions a misdemeanor.

Beiers will also be looking at issues raised and since ignored in the historic Homeless Issues Task Force recommendations, presented in 2000 at a cost of $10,000 after a year of work.

The report can be found at .

Beiers earlier discussion can be found at & (fast forward towards the last 1/4 of the audio file).

Organized by HRO (the Human Rights Organization) and HUFF (Homeless United for Friendship & Freedom), the meeting is open to anyone.

If you can't afford tea, we'll buy it for you.
