(a) No person, group of persons or organization shall conduct or participate in any parade, procession or assemblage upon any street or highway, or block off any street or highway area, without first obtaining a permit from the Director of Police.
(b) Applications for such permits shall be made on such forms as may be prescribed and shall contain such information as is reasonably necessary to a fair determination of whether a permit should be issued. Applications shall be filled out not less than 15 days before the time intended for such parade, procession or assemblage.
(c) The permit may be refused or canceled if the resultant conditions would unreasonably hinder the movement of traffic or would require the diversion of sufficient police officers or firefighters so as to deprive the City of normal police and fire protection, or would be reasonably likely to provoke disorderly conduct, create a disturbance or threaten the safety of residents.
(d) The permit or any order accompanying it may limit or prescribe whatever reasonable conditions, including the hours, the places of assembly and of dispersal, the route of march or travel and the streets, highways or portions thereof which may be used or occupied.
