    There's a difference between promoting "live and vibrancy" and letting intimidating hobos and aggressive panhandlers take over the Plaza. The decent folks of Santa Fe and our visitors shouldn't have to pay a toll to these vagrants to get them to allow us to enjoy the Plaza without fear.

    When our Plaza becomes nothing more than a filthy hobo camp, we'll all lose.

    Judy, if you really feel that buskers are the live on the Plaza you are way off base...they are not here during winter and spring and only show up when tourist are in town. Vendors and businesses are there year round, so come on down and add to the Plaza's spirit bu suggesting real things to attract peoples other than wining after buskers

    Ms. Pettus,

    Pierce Knolls is correct. I just double checked with Daniel Chacón and the forum will take place on May 12. I added the date in the story for clarity.

    Thanks,

    How is this new busking ordinance bringing "...life and vibrancy to the Plaza"? It has brought mostly silence.

    It seems to me that the City Council is sucking the life and personality out of the plaza to appease a few complaining vendors and avoid the issue of the police neglecting to enforce the ordinance that was previously in place.

    When our Plaza becomes nothing more than an overpriced outdoor mall, we'll all lose.

    Give the buskers one evening a week on stage, with amps and mics. Let them show their stuff, try to earn their tips without accosting.

    The story says "Mayor Javier Gonzales has scheduled a public forum Monday..." which would presumably make it May 12.
