This notice is for the attention, in particular, of Hayward downtown business owners and residents.


Below is a notice regarding a community meeting the city is convening tomorrow morning (Saturday, Sept. 7) regarding the proposed outdoor feeding/food sharing ordinance the Hayward City Council will consider Oct. 1. The intent of this ordinance is to try and regulate/control some of the problem behaviors occurring in conjunction with outdoor feeding activities downtown.


City staff members have told me it is important to get input from business owners and residents about the impacts of these activities so the council hears a balanced perspective on the issue. Please attend either the community meeting Saturday, the community meeting next Wednesday evening, Sept. 11, or the City Council meeting Oct. 1. 


If you can't attend any of the meetings, you can submit written comments to the mayor and city council by sending an e-mail to: list-mayor-council@hayward-ca.gov.
