(a) The Chief of Police shall issue a permit as provided for herein when, from a consideration of the application and from such other information as may otherwise be obtained, he finds that:
(1) The conduct of the parade or public assembly will not substantially interrupt the safe and orderly movement of other pedestrian or vehicular traffic contiguous to its route or location;
(2) The conduct of the parade or public assembly will not require the diversion of so great a number of city police officers to police properly the line of movement and the areas contiguous thereto as to prevent normal police protection of the city;
(3) The concentration of person, animals, and vehicles at public assembly points of the parade or public assembly will not unduly interfere with property, fire and police protection of, or ambulance service to, areas contiguous to such public assembly areas;
(4) The conduct of the parade or public assembly is not reasonably likely to cause injury to persons or property;
(5) The parade or public assembly is scheduled to move from its point of origin to its point of termination expeditiously and without unreasonable delays en route;
(6) Adequate sanitation and other required health facilities are or will be made available in or adjacent to any public assembly areas;
(7) There are sufficient parking places near the site of the parade or public assembly to accommodate the number of vehicles reasonably expected;
(8) The applicant has secured the police protection, if any, required under Section Seven (7);
(9) Such parade or public assembly is not for the primary purpose of advertising any product, goods or event that is primarily for private profit, and the parade itself is not primarily for profit. The prohibition against advertising any product, goods or event shall not apply to signs identifying organizations or sponsors furnishing or sponsoring exhibits or structures used in the parade;
(10) No parade or public assembly permit application for the same time and location is already granted or has been received and will be granted;
(11) No parade or public assembly permit application for the same time but not location is already granted or has been received and will be granted, and the police resources required for that prior parade or public assembly are so great that in combination with the subsequent proposed application, the resulting deployment of police services would have an immediate and adverse effect upon the welfare and safety of persons and property; and
(12) No event is scheduled elsewhere in the city where the police resources required for that event are so great that the deployment of police services for the proposed parade or public assembly would have an immediate and adverse effect upon the welfare and safety of persons and property.
(13) The parade, if it takes the form of cruising, has the approval in writing of the owner or an authorized agent of the owner for the use of the parking lot which is the site of the parade.
(b) No permit shall be granted that allows for the erection or placement of any structure, whether permanent or temporary, on a city street, sidewalk, or right-of-way unless advance approval for the erection or placement of the structure is obtained from the Board of Commissioners.
