Expansion of Model Airplane Site Denied
Tonight the Costa Mesa Parks and Recreation Commission, after hearing significant public input, denied the request from the Harbor Soaring Society to more than double the graded area they currently use as a "flying field" in Fairview Park. In a motion initiated by commissioner Ethan Temianka, the commissioners did approve the one-year extension of their permit and also requested that the City Council restructure the Fairview Park Citizens Advisory Committee. The vote passed, 4-0.
Sixteen speakers addressed the commission, the vast majority of which acknowledged that the Harbor Soaring Society is and has been a good neighbor, but they opposed the expansion of the flying field. Speakers favoring the expansion - all were fliers - were outnumbered 4 to 1.
TRUTH TO THE "PAVING" RUMOR
WE'RE NOT ALWAYS WRONG HERE...
Remember that apology I wrote last week? Never mind...
