Such application shall be on a form prescribed by the city manager, shall require the application to be signed by the adult applicant or applicants, shall require that the adult applicant show the proposed time, place, purpose and size of such parade, picket line or group demonstration.
(2) Refuse to issue such permit when the activity or purpose stated in the application would violate any ordinance of the city or statute of the state, or when the activity or purpose would constitute a clear and present danger to the public health or safety or would hinder or prevent the orderly movement of pedestrian or vehicular traffic on the streets, alleys, or sidewalks;
(3) Require that the application for a permit shall specify and the permit shall designate the adult person in charge of the activity.

c. Can be conducted without unreasonable interference with normal pedestrian or vehicular traffic in the area;
