Meetings Today and Tomorrow

In case you've forgotten, the Costa Mesa Parks and Recreation Commission under the guidance of Chairman Jeff Mathews meets this evening at 6:00 in City Council Chambers at City Hall. They have a slim agenda and only meet every other month, so if you want to see them in action go to City Hall or watch the meeting televised live on CMTV - Channel 24 (Time Warner Cable) or Channel 99 (ATT U-Verse).


the Orange County Fair Board holds its monthly meeting, but this one has been re-scheduled to 3:30 so folks attending can transition seamlessly to the Open House/Workshop about the modifications planned for the Pacific Amphitheater that's being held at the Fairgrounds Administration building beginning at 6:00. That subject has been a lightning rod for controversy over the years. You can read about that meeting HERE.

I suppose we might hear more information about the pending departure of Fair CEO Dr. Steven Beazley, who announced his retirement from State service recently.

Hey Geoff, why the big controversy about the refurbishment to the amphitheater? Is it just a case of naysayers being contrary?

They have been having concerts there for 9 years without incident, why do the gadflies assume everything is going to suddenly go down the tubes?

It seems like it is an aging facility in need of some repairs and that seems to be the big plan. Plus bringing it up to current standards. I would think improvements would only make it a better, quieter place.

And, of course, no matter what work they do, they still have to abide by the noise standards put in place in the 1990's.

I don't get the fuss, but Genis and Ridge always have to oppose anything the fair does. Why didn't they oppose these ideas in 2003 when they were approved? Do they realize these plans predate Beazley and Ellis?
