- HEARING AND POSSIBLE MOTION TO APPROVE ISSUANCE OF CERTIFICATE OR RENEWAL OF CERTIFICATE
Jeffrey Shedrick - Certificate # 5695 (expired 11/15/01). Hearing and possible motion to approve July 23, 2002 request by Jeffrey Shedrick for issuance of new certificate.
At its meeting of January 9, 2002, the Street Artists Committee found Mr. Shedrick in violation for selling in a location not designated by the Board of Supervisors, for selling within 12 feet of a doorway, and for conducting business in an improper, disorderly, hazardous manner (having a vehicle parked in a non-parking zone adjacent to street artist display) and recommended that issuance of a certificate for Mr. Shedrick be denied. The Committee's findings and recommendation were approved by the Program Director on January 17, 2002.
- HEARING TO APPEAL PROGRAM DIRECTOR'S DECISION TO MAINTAIN WARNING; POSSIBLE MOTION TO WITHDRAW WARNING
Robert Clark - Certificate #2753; William Clark - Certificate #2735. Hearing and possible motion to approve July 3, 2002 request by Robert Clark and William Clark that warning issued by Program Director be withdrawn.
On June 11, 2002, the Program Director conducted a hearing on a request submitted by Robert Clark and William Clark for appeal of the Program Director's May 8, 2002 "NOTICE OF WARNING" issued to the Clarks for having allegedly violated the street artist ordinance at the street artist lottery of May 5, 2002 in the following manner: (1) Obstructing Lottery Committee member Juanita Havet in the performance of her duty of running the lottery, and (2) obstructing the Arts Commission's lottery procedure (Arts Commission Lottery Rule VIII; Section 2406(a) and Ord. 41-83). Upon conclusion of the Program Director's June 11th hearing, the Program Director found "that a significant portion of a Lottery Committee member's performance of duty of running the lottery is the half hour of preparation detail prior to the lottery itself; because of the verbal altercation that occurred between" the Clarks "and Mrs. Havet during that time period, the warning for" the first charge "shall remain." The Program Director further found, however, that because "the lottery procedure itself commenced on time at 9:30 a.m. ... the warning for" the second charge "shall be withdrawn."
On July 3, 2002, Robert and William Clark submitted a request for a hearing by the Street Artists Committee to appeal the Program Director's decision to maintain the warning relevant to the first charge.
- HEARING AND POSSIBLE MOTION TO APPROVE STREET ARTIST PROPOSAL(S) FOR STREET ARTIST SPACES ON JEFFERSON STREET AND AUTHORIZATION OF PROGRAM DIRECTOR TO REQUEST PORT COMMISSION FOR A HEARING TO CONSIDER APPROVING SUBMITTED PROPOSAL(S).
