Shifting Priorities

FAIR TIME!
Looks like it's going to be an interesting week in our fair city. Actually, that's a little play on words, acknowledging that the Orange County Fair is now up and running.

PLANNING COMMISSION MEETING TODAY - NEW TIME

Besides the fair we have other entertainment happening here in town if the form of municipal meetings. Today there is supposed to be a Planning Commission meeting, which starts at their new time of 6:00 p.m. It's always an adventure to see what the new developer majority will come up with.


FULL AGENDA, INCLUDING THEIR STIPEND

This meeting, f
or example, is a paradox. First thing off the bat the commission will approve a resolution to decrease meetings to one per month, then launch into what may be the most packed agenda in months. At the very tail end of the meeting they are scheduled to discuss the stipend they receive as commissioners. I don't know what direction this will take because, as of this moment, there is no staff report available for review on that subject.

DOUBLE YOUR STOOGES, DOUBLE YOUR FUN

Then, even more fun, Tuesday there is a joint City Council/Planning Commission Study Session at 4:30 in Conference Room 1A, in which the council will theoretically attempt to tighten the focus of the Planning Commission. It will be interesting to see what kind of direction the majority on the council gives the majority on the commission. That should be very interesting, indeed.

INTERESTING AGENDA ITEMS
For example, the council and commission will discuss city regulations for establishments that sell alcoholic beverages for off-site consumption, code enforcement priorities and procedures and the SoBECA Plan/19 West/Mesa West Bluffs Urban Plans and the "permitted uses" in each of them.

FINALLY...
So far, no mention of the budget appears in any of the staff report...
