Gail Lundholm, Hayward Arts Council and Manager, Cinema Place Gallery, 1061 B St., thanked Council and the property developer for their support of the new gallery which, as of February 1, has welcomed an average of 80 visitors daily and opens at noon, Wednesday thru Sunday. She invited Council and the public to "Art is Education: A Continuum of Learning."
Mary Clements, Skywest Townhouse HOA, expressed concern over Target's application to sell alcohol. The store is at 19661 Hesperian Blvd. She reminded Council that a condition of approval of the development in 2005 was that alcohol could not be sold.

Jim Drake pointed out that Sections 4-1.02 and 4-1.03 are the heart of the current Noise Ordinance which was adopted 52 years ago and amended 25 years ago. He likened it to a Bill of Rights. To adopt the proposed new ordinance would be tantamount to writing a new constitution. A public hearing is scheduled for March 1, 2011.
Councilman Bill Quirk stated that United Food & Commercial Workers, Local Five, would like Council to consider a suggested ordinance to deal with large stores with a substantial grocery component. The City Manager will assess the feasibility of such legislation to decide if it might appear on a future Council agenda for passage.
