  b. District Property. For purposes of this Master Ordinance, “District Property” means property owned, controlled, or leased by the District.
     
2. Rules and Regulations: The District authorizes the General Manager, or designee, to develop and implement rules and regulations as necessary to effectuate the goals of this ordinance.
     
3. Locations Where Expressive Activity is Prohibited and Permitted.

4. Exceptions to Permit Requirement.
     
  a. An exception to the permit requirement is allowed for Expressive Activity that is on: (i) Bridge Sidewalks or on other designated public areas near the Bridge that are depicted on Exhibit A(1), which involves less than 50 participants; (ii) the Plaza Area, the Flagpole Area, and areas south and west of the Administration Building, and other areas where expressive activities are permitted (Exhibit A(2)), which involves less than 50 participants; (iii) designated property of the Larkspur or San Francisco Ferry Terminals that is depicted on Exhibit A(3) and A(4), which involves less than 50 participants; or, (iv) San Rafael Transit Center property, as designated on Exhibit A(7), which involves less than three people.

This exception from the permit requirement does not apply to Expressive Activity on District property when the property is closed to the public because no Expressive Activity is allowed on any District property when such property is closed to the public.
     
  b. Expressive Activity in all other public areas on District Property requires a permit issued by the District.
     
  c. Only one Expressive Activity is allowed in the same physical space at the same time.

Events that are located within 100 feet of the shoreline of the Bay are located within BCDC jurisdiction and will require at least a 45 day advance notice for processing for the required permit. The General Manager, or designee, will assist event sponsors in identifying if a BCDC permit is required and will advise on the process for obtaining a permit.
