Fairview Park Citizens Advisory Committee Meets Tomorrow
Tomorrow, Wednesday, December 4, 2013, the Costa Mesa Fairview Park Citizens Advisory Committee will hold its final meeting of the year beginning at 6:00 in the Victoria Room at the Costa Mesa Neighborhood Community Center (Lions Park).
Taking a look at the agenda, HERE, it appears that this meeting might actually finish within the allotted 90 minutes scheduled. It's unlikely that we will see another meeting like the last one, which was archived via video coverage by Barry Friedland on his Costa Mesa Brief YouTube site. I wrote about it HERE. If you wish to refresh your memory of that meeting - when committee member Anna Vrska created a furor by pointing out some very obvious issues. The archived video is in three segments. #1 is HERE; #2 is HERE and #3 is HERE. I suggest that you watch the first 15 minutes of #1 and the first 15 minutes or so of #3.
The main item on this agenda is the consideration of the Northwest Quadrant of the park, HERE. There are four attachments to that staff report. #1 is the original list, compiled by the committee on July 17, 2013, of proposed changes to Fairview Park, HERE. #2 is an aerial view of the Northwest Quadrant of the park, HERE. #3 is a list of items NOT APPLICABLE to the Northwest Quadrant, HERE. The final attachment, #4, is a list of Quadrant-specific items, HERE.
Based on a quick look at the agenda and the aerial map, it seems like almost NONE of the items that are to be considered COULD be placed in that quadrant, hence the anticipated short meeting. We'll see.
ANTICIPATING A CROWD
These meetings have had a very significant public participation. The last one played to a standing room only crowd and had many residents stand and speak to the issues that night. I wonder what kind of a turnout we'll see tomorrow night. There was some serious grumbling by members of the committee about how the last one was conducted, so I wonder if we'll see mutiny in the ranks Wednesday night. Could be fun. See you there.
