Parks & Rec. Commission Agenda
Although we're still a week away until the Costa Mesa Parks and Recreation Commission meets again, the agenda was made available today, so I thought I'd get a jump on it for you.
The short-handed commission - Don Harper resigned after having missed the past three meetings - meets on Thursday, April 28, 2016 beginning at 6:00 p.m. in City Council Chambers at City Hall. You can read the full agenda HERE. It's a short one, so I don't expect this meeting to run much past 7:00 p.m.
A TREE AND PLAQUE TO HONOR LIONS CLUB MEMBERS
There's a donation of a tree and plaque at Lions Park, HERE, in honor of Lions Club members, past, present and future, that will be installed at minimal cost to the city.
AB 2496 - ELIMINATION OF DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME
Under New Business there is a staff report, HERE, regarding Assembly Bill 2496 and its potential impact on Costa Mesa Sports Groups. The bill would eliminate Daylight Savings Time, which would have a very significant negative effect on youth sports, not only in Costa Mesa, but throughout the state. In order to meet the demands of numerous youth sports groups, expensive portable lights would have to be used. The staff will be looking for direction on submitting a recommendation on a legislative position on the bill.
There is an item, HERE, regarding appointment of two of their remaining four members to the Streetscape & Median Development Standards Committee.
ARLINGTON DRIVE LANDSCAPE PALETTE
The final item on the agenda, HERE, is the Proposed Landscape Palette For Arlington Drive coincident with the installation of the new bioswale project.
I mentioned above that Don Harper has resigned. The City is launching a recruitment to fill his position on the Commission. His term expires early next year. You can read all the details of this recruitment HERE. The deadline to apply is 5:00 p.m., Friday, May 13, 2016.
