- HEARING AND POSSIBLE MOTION TO APPROVE ISSUANCE OF CERTIFICATE OR RENEWAL OF CERTIFICATE
Adriel Quintana Loayza - Certificate # 5886. Alleged violations: (1) Selling items not certified by Arts Commission (woven thread bracelets; woven bead necklaces; fabricated silver pendants); (2) Selling items not of the artist's own creation (the above items plus South American-style fabricated metal, stone, bead necklaces and epoxy putty items); (3) Selling in a location not designated by the Board of Supervisors.
Section 5 of the Street Artists Ordinance allows the Director of Cultural Affairs to refuse to issue or renew a street artist certificate if charges have been filed alleging deception or violation of the Street Artists Ordinance. Under the Arts Commission's Section 5 procedures, the Director of Cultural Affairs may withhold the issuance or renewal of a street artist's certificate if the artist is charged with the violation of selling items not certified by the Arts Commission and/or selling items not of the artist's own creation. Such charges belong to the category of "serious violations" which are considered by the Commission to include "violations that significantly threaten the integrity of the Street Artists Program." Because of the above charges, the issuance or renewal of Mr. Quintana Loayza's certificate has been withheld pending hearing with the Street Artists Committee.
- HEARING AND POSSIBLE MOTION TO APPROVE FOR SUBMITTAL TO BOARD OF SUPERVISORS DRAFT ORDINANCE AMENDING THE POLICE CODE BY AMENDING SECTION 2405 TO MODIFY STREET ARTIST REGULATIONS
On October 1, 2001, the full Arts Commission unanimously voted to to approve submittal of an ordinance to the Board of Supervisors to amend the street artist safety regulations of Section 2405(c)(6) and (c)(16) whereby a street artist display would be required to be not within 10 feet, instead of the present 12 feet, of the outer edge of a doorway or entrance and would be required to maintain 8 feet, instead of the present 10 feet, of a pedestrian passageway. A draft ordinance incorporating these provisions will be heard by the Street Artists Committee for possible motion of approval for submittal to the Board of Supervisors.
