Ordinance Enacted Regarding St. George Street

On February 24, the City Commission passed an ordinance relating to activity along the pedestrian sections of St. George St. The new ordinance (2003-08) allows artists to set up easels and paint in that area, which lies between Orange St. and Cathedral Pl., and allows for processions and parades with a permit from the City.

The ordinance’s original draft included regulations governing the performances of street entertainers, allowing periods of performances early in the morning and after 5:00pm. But in its final form, the ordinance did not address street entertainment.

In its discussions, the Commissioner felt that the issue of street entertainment needed to be addressed in the near future, but that it was best to first allow more public discussion of the issue. Saying that allowing artists to work and parades to return to the street were good first steps, the Commissioners agreed the topic would be discussed in greater depth at a future meeting or perhaps even a workshop.
