3) To update existing permit requirements;

4) To modify the Campus Exclusion rule from the current maximum exclusion of up to 5 days to a maximum exclusion of up to 365 days for violators of Seattle Center rules, the Seattle Municipal Code, the Revised Code of Washington, or other applicable law;

5) To authorize the Director to adopt guidelines that may:

  • Include a listing of violations and the range of exclusion periods corresponding to those violations, including for repeat violations; and,
  • Designate in writing who may issue exclusions, for which offenses, or for what periods of time.

6) To provide an administrative review process for those who receive a Campus Exclusion notice for a period of 7 days or more.
