Fair Board Meeting Thursday
So, after all the turmoil about the trifecta of articles involving the Orange County Fair and Event Center in the Daily Pilot today I've decided to matriculate over to the Fairgrounds tomorrow at 10:00 to check out the action at the Fair Board meeting. Although the agenda is long - 80 pages - the actual program may not be all that lengthy. You can read the agenda HERE.
MEETING AGENDA HIGHLIGHTS
Three items appear on the "Governance Process" segment of the agenda.
A. Proposal for Creation of Worker's Memorial - This is Nick Berardino's idea to create some kind of a permanent monument at the Fairgrounds comemorating the contributions of agricultural workers to our state.
B. Review and Approve the Scope of Work for the Fair Sale Review Committee and Provide Direction Regarding the Appointment of Committee Members - This is going to be a VERY interesting issue, particularly when we see who will be appointed to the committee.
C. Review and Approve Pacific Amphitheatre Renovation Project - This project, originally scheduled to begin in October of this year and be completed by July of 2013, will cost over $15 million to complete - significantly more than originally projected. Because of the additional costs involved it is unlikely that the project will commence at the original date. The staff is looking for direction from the Board.
MILITARY AFFAIRS TEAM MEETING TOMORROW EVENING
I'll report back tomorrow sometime - hopefully before I join councilwoman Wendy Leece at the Costa Mesa Military Affairs Team meeting at 6:00 at the Emergency Operations Center adjacent to the Police Station at 99 Fair Drive.
