- Berkeley modifies city laws to empower officials during protests
By Kimberly Veklerov - Saturday Aug 19, 2017
Berkeley officials have tweaked local laws to give the city more power over unauthorized demonstrations, just days before another far-right rally is planned for downtown. The City Council passed the emergency ordinance on a 7-1 vote during a special meeting Friday evening. The move gives the city manager the power to issue rules for street events whose organizers did not obtain a permit. The planned protest next Sunday, billed as an anticommunist rally, will be the fourth such gathering in the city this year. Pro-Trump events in March and April drew throngs of counterprotesters, including self-styled “antifascist” groups, as police struggled to prevent confrontations.

- State high court says college can’t pave over gardens yet
By Bob Egelko - Thursday Jul 20, 2017
College district officials must first study the environmental effects of replacing the greenery with a parking lot, and include options to limit any visual or atmospheric impact, under an appellate ruling that the high court left intact.“Hopefully they’ll decide to keep the gardens or substantially save them,” said Susan Brandt-Hawley, lawyer for a group of students and local residents who call themselves the Friends of the College of San Mateo Gardens and consider the foliage their campus haven.The district’s 2006 master plan proposed leaving it in place, but in 2011, district officials presented an amended plan to remove the garden, and an adjoining greenhouse and vacant classroom building, and replace them with 140 to 160 parking spaces.The district declined to conduct an environmental study, saying the demolition would amount to only a minor alteration in its 2006 plan.Presiding Justice James Humes said in the 3-0 appellate ruling that there was a “fair argument” that demolition would have an aesthetic impact, the standard set by state law to require environmental review.
