Planning, Grants, Labor Negotiations and Party Planning
It's going to be an interesting week at City Hall in Costa Mesa next week.
PLANNING COMMISSION MEETING ON MONDAY
First, the Planning Commission will hold its meeting on Monday at 6:00 in council chambers. They have a pretty heavy agenda, HERE - always a good sign that the economy may, in fact, be coming around after way, way too many years in the tank.
The Consent Calendar has two items: the Code Enforcement update, HERE, and the Development Phasing and Performance Monitoring Program for the 2011 year, HERE. There's a good chance neither will be pulled for discussion, so the staff reports might be helpful to you. The Code Enforcement report will tell which of your neighbors have let their lawns get too long, have too many weeds in their yards and how many junk cars they're storing.
There are five (5) Public Hearings that will take up the bulk of the evening. The are:
1 - A conditional use permit to move a Tattoo parlor at 2204 Newport Blvd. HERE.
2 - The two-year review of the development agreement with Roy K. Sakioka and Sons, HERE.
3 - The conversion of a 3-unit parcel at 1992 Anaheim Avenue, HERE.
4 - Design review to construct a 14-unit, two-story detached single-family residential development at 2157-2159 Tustin Avenue, HERE.
5 - Design review to construct five two-story residential units at 2573 Elden Avenue, HERE.
It will be interesting to see how Chairman Jim Fitzpatrick directs his new commission through these issues.
COUNCIL MEETINGS ON TUESDAY
Tuesday brings a couple unusual City Council meetings.
First, at 4:30, there will be a special study session in Council Chambers to discuss the distribution of Community Development Block Grant funds. You can read the agenda HERE and the specific agenda report HERE.
Second, scheduled at 5:00, but will realistically immediately follow the study session, there is a special closed session at which the council will discuss labor negotiations, HERE. It's unlikely they will have anything to "report out", but one never knows. This is the first pass at negotiations using Steve Mensinger's COIN scheme, so we're in uncharted territory. We'll just have to rock along and see what happens.
60TH ANNIVERSARY COMMITTEE
Thursday afternoon, at 5:30, the 60th Anniversary Committee will meet again to keep things moving toward the launch event the last weekend of June.
