A Very Busy Week Ahead In Costa Mesa

AFTER A LITTLE REST...
After having what amounted to a vacation from city meetings last week, this upcoming week promises to make up for that lull.  Here's a rundown of scheduled meetings that you may wish to attend or watch on television or streaming video when available.  I'll cover each of them in more detail later.


MONDAY - PLANNING COMMISSION MEETING
At 6:00 p.m. in City Council Chambers the Costa Mesa Planning Commission will hold its regularly-scheduled meeting.  You can read the agenda HERE.  Among the items on the agenda are Public Hearings on a development at 270 Palmer; modification of a permit for the Orange Coast Buick dealership; revocation of the Conditional Use Permit for the Costa Mesa Motor Inn and New Business items to Revise the Planning Commission Bylaws and to hear from representatives of Orange Coast College on the "Vision 2020 Facilities Master Plan".

TUESDAY MORNING - COFFEE WITH A COP
In the first of a series of meetings, members of the Costa Mesa Police Department will meet with public from 8:00 - 10:00 a.m. at the McDonald's Restaurant, 3141 Harbor Blvd. for an informal chat - just an opportunity to voice your concerns and get to know the officers in your neighborhood.
TUESDAY EVENING CONCERTS IN THE PARK
The popular Concerts In The Park series continues, beginning at 5:30 at Fairview Park featuring Latin Jazz this time around.

TUESDAY EVENING - CITY COUNCIL MEETING
The Costa Mesa City Council will meet beginning at 6:00 p.m. in City Council Chambers with an agenda, HERE, that promises to be action-packed.  I'll cover it in detail later, but here's an overview.

Items of interest, beyond the Warrant on the Consent Calendar, include certification of special assessments for delinquent civil fines for municipal code violations; vacation of a portion of Superior Avenue; a lot line adjustment on 18th Street; Second reading of the Annexation ordinance for the so-called Santa Ana/Colleen Island Annexation; First reading of the new Motel Ordinance;  Second reading on the Municipal Code section regarding rewards for information on vandalism of private property and - the BIGGIE - the second reading of the Conduct While Addressing City Council ordinance.  As I said, more on this meeting later.

TUESDAY EVENING - ORANGE COAST COLLEGE EXPANSION
Also beginning at 6:00, there will be a Public Hearing in the Orange Coast College Library, 2701 Fairview Road, Costa Mesa at which the above-mentioned Vision 2020 Facilities Master Plan will be discussed.  This involves Measure M funds and will include more than 1.2 million square feet of expansion plus parking on the Fairgrounds parking lot.

WEDNESDAY EVENING - PARKS, OPEN SPACE AND CONSERVATION WORKSHOP
Wednesday there will be a General Plan Workshop, also at the Neighborhood Community Center, on July 16th beginning at 6:00.  There will be an open house for the first hour, then a "Facilitated Discussion" for the second. The topics will be Parks, Open Space and Conservation.  This will be a great opportunity for you to hear about future plans and to provide input to the City on them.  See you there.
