A BIG Week Ahead
After what felt like a vacation last week, with only one big meeting - the Charter Committee - held during that five-day span, next week is going to make up for it - in spades!
Here's the schedule of events that face us next week
MONDAY, AUGUST 19, 2013
The Fairview Park Citizens Advisory Committee will meet again in the Emergency Operations Center (EOC) adjacent to the Police Department from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m. You can read the agenda for that meeting HERE. Following presentations by representatives from the Harbor Soaring Society and the Waldorf School there will be a discussion of roles and responsibilities of the Committee and the Parks and Recreation Commission, which have appeared to be slightly out of sync recently.
The committee will then review the Park Master Plan, focusing on the Southwest Quadrant this time.
This meeting, as all are, is open to the public, so anyone interested in the future of Fairview Park is encouraged to attend and address the committee at the appropriate time.
TUESDAY, AUGUST 20, 2013
Eastside Costa Mesa Neighbors Group will be given an opportunity to express their collective and individual views on issues they feel should be considered in the pending General Plan update. This meeting is scheduled from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. The public is welcome at this meeting, too. You can visit the city web page dedicated to the General Plan meeting/roadshow schedules HERE for information about this meeting and others in the future.
WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 21, 2013
In an effort to schedule General Plan meetings at times, and with amenities, that meet the needs of busy families so their input can be taken for this very important update process a "Live Puppet Theater Show and General Plan Land Use Alternatives Workshop" will be held beginning on the lawn adjacent to City Hall at 6:00 p.m. The puppet show will also begin at that time.
At 7:00 those interested can adjourn to the Emergency Operations Center, right next door, for further information on the Land Use Element of the General Plan. Refreshments from Starbucks will be served for both the puppet show and the meeting. See the flyer below for information. (click image to enlarge)
THURSDAY, AUGUST 22, 2013
HERE. The meeting will have a presentation on the Costa Mesa Country Club Entryway Improvement and deal with several requests for tree removal.
FAIRVIEW PARK ENTRYWAY PLANS
The big item on the agenda, though, is the only Old Business item on the agenda, the Fairview Park Entryway Concept Plans, HERE. This one is a return visit due to the controversy about the number of parking spots planned for the original idea. This one has been modified with what looks like the same parking lot footprint, but fewer actual spaces indicated. From what I read in the staff report, this seems like a good solution and provides for future possible needs. (click on image to enlarge)
