Here is the Lane County press release on its latest closing of Free Speech Plaza. The county voted for an "emergency" closing of the Wayne Morse Terrace (aka the Wayne Morse Free Speech Plaza) 4-1, with Pete Sorenson voting against the closure. The county is also changing the Lane Code rules on the plaza, to "provide clear long term rules for use of the Free Speech Area."
The county says in the press release that "Under both the order and the proposed Code revisions, the Designated Free Speech Area, a County facility within the Wayne Morse Terrace will close from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m. daily."
