General Public Comment
Chair Charles Collins called for public comment.
There was one public comment.
Tad Sky commented that the parking situation at the Plaza Square is particularly difficult.
Action. Hearing and possible motion to approve two quarter suspension of certificate for street artist Dan Peng "Cola Burch" #8669 for running their vehicle into another artists' vehicle, and disrupting the market with loud noise from their car horn.
Community Investments Program Officer, Anne Trickey, began their presentation by providing background information on the Street Artist program and its permitting and licensing process. They went on to describe the incident as described in the action above providing written statements and other evidence (see explanatory documents). It was noted that neither parties were present for the hearing.
Commissioner Marcus Shelby recommended to amend the motion to a one quarter suspension with warnings given to both parties.
Moved: Shiota / Parker Pennington.
Public Comment: None.
The motion was unanimously approved. Motion carries.
Chair Charles Collins called for public comment.
There was one public comment.
It is a difficult situation when parties don’t show up for hearings and there are no witnesses. It is good that the Commission takes action, but the problem won’t go away. The problem may resolve itself if there is a market manager onsite more days. If nothing is done the artists get very discouraged and there is no value in making a complaint. Maybe an email can be sent out regarding parking and code of conduct stating that if codes are violated artists could be suspended and have to go to the Commission. Although it’s really expensive to park most artists do cooperate with the parking.
There being no further business, this meeting was adjourned at 1:57 p.m.
