INTERESTING AGENDA THURSDAY NIGHT
The Costa Mesa Parks and Recreation Commission, led by Chairman Kim Pederson,  meets on Thursday, August 27, 2016 beginning at 6:00 p.m. in City Council Chambers at City Hall and this meeting has some very interesting items on the agenda, HERE. 
 
CMPD REPORT ON WILSON PARK
Right off the top the commissioners will hear a presentation from the Costa Mesa Police Department on the status of Wilson Park.  You can read the report, HERE.  The short version of some of the numbers that should draw you to that staff report - Calls For Service at Wilson Park for January through July of this year are up 90% compared to the same period last year!  Read the report.

NEW CLASS FEES
There is a proposal for new fees for three new adult and youth instructional classes, HERE.  The classes are Gymnastics, Dance and Drawing and Painting.

TREES
There are two tree removal requests on the agenda, both of which the staff is recommending be denied.  There is also a tree donation request for Estancia Park on the agenda.

REPLACING OCME WATER TANK AT FAIRVIEW PARK
Item 9e, HERE, is a proposal from the Orange County Model Engineers (OCME) to replace an existing water tower with new metal tank in response to vandalism to the existing unit.  The OCME has been a positive presence in Fairview Park for a quarter century and has been a good stewards of the section of the park they occupy.  The city council recently approved a five (5) year extension of their agreement.

REALIGNMENT OF FAIRVIEW PARK NORTH BLUFF TRAIL
The final item on the formal agenda, HERE, is proposal to realign Fairview Park North Bluff Trail due to deterioration of the existing trail, utilizing a user-defined trail as the formal trail.

The CMPD Wilson Park report states that a local Irvine church group serves Wednesday lunch. This is incorrect. I have participated in this church "group" and we are not all affiliated with Irvine. In fact, most of us are members of Costa Mesa churches: Rock Harbor, the Crossing and Fairview Community Church.

Perhaps Mayor can call his sycophant contractors to "fix" the user-defined trail, have broad spectrum herbicides applied, scrape the path and add DG!!! Then call the DP to make a media splash, and make sure it stays on the header menu and feature content area for protracted re-election exposure!

Why is COSTA MESA Parks and Rec considering to recieve cost recovery fees for these new classes? The classes are held in IRVINE off Jeffrey Road, north of the 5 Freeway.

I heard that Riggy and Mensy saw what the dance instructors make and they currently have staff working on a Dance with the Mayor and Junior Mayor class.
