Great News. Now hopefully the hyperbole "occupy wall street is over" can end.

Hmmm....Were you at GA last night? Drummers proposed 4 hours a day, from 12 to 2 and from 4 to 6 and it passed. Was the community board made aware?

RE:                  Occupy Wall Street protest in Zuccotti Park
WHEREAS:   Community Board 1 (CB 1) supports Occupy Wall Street's (OWS)
First Amendment right to protest, and
WHEREAS:   CB 1 supports OWS's First Amendment right to free assembly, and
WHEREAS:   CB 1 has previously been on record twice as supporting extension
of the "millionaire's tax" to offset budget cuts to education, an issue that
has also been raised by many in OWS, and
WHEREAS:   CB 1 opposes the use of excessive and unnecessary force by the
City of New York and/or Brookfield Office Properties to address this
situation, and
WHEREAS:   CB 1 believes that preserving Constitutional rights and also
proactively addressing the increasing frustration among many local residents
and small businesses regarding health, public safety, noise, sanitation and
other community concerns are in no way mutually exclusive, and indeed both
can be accomplished, and
WHEREAS:   CB1 is concerned that the magnitude of the situation at Zuccotti
Park is not being fully documented because calls to 311 have been turned
away on the grounds that the NYPD is already aware of the situation; now


THEREFORE
BE IT
RESOLVED
THAT:             CB 1 calls on OWS, the City of New York, all elected
officials representing Lower Manhattan and all major stakeholders to come
together to address the following issues which are adversely affecting
quality of life in this community:

1)      Limit use of drums, trumpets, tambourines, bugles, air horns,
shouting and chanting, and all other sources of noise to two hours per day,
in midday.
2)      Arrange access to bathrooms off-site, and eliminate use of retail
shops and residential building doorways as bathroom facilities.
3)      Enforce previously declared commitments by OWS to adopt all of the
provisions of the Good Neighbor Policy (attached) that have been previously
agreed to in eight prior meetings with OWS over the past four weeks.
4)      Work with local small businesses to address economic impacts.
5)      CB 1 requests a meeting with NYPD as soon as possible to discuss the
necessity for extensive deployment of pedestrian barricades in the central
Financial District, and the removal of all except those deemed absolutely
necessary for security and public safety.
6)      CB1 urges the NYC Department of Information Technology and
Telecommunications to establish a consistent policy of accepting, recording,
tracking and referring to the appropriate city agencies all 311 calls
regarding disturbances in and around Zuccotti Park.
