Measure S: Berkeley's Proposed Sit-Lie Ban

 (Nancy Rubin/Berkleyside)

Berkeley has a controversial new ordinance on the ballot this November. If enacted, Measure S will ban sitting on sidewalks in the city's commercial districts during the day. Proponents say people camping out on sidewalks are driving customers away from local stores and restaurants and hurting Berkeley's business community. Opponents say it will divert police resources and that it doesn't solve the problem of homelessness.

Davida Coady, medical director for Options Recovery Services, which provides intensive substance-abuse treatment to the public, largely homeless and formerly incarcerated

Elisa Della-Piana, director of the Neighborhood Justice Clinic, East Bay Community Law Center
