Short Parks & Rec. Commission Meeting Anticipated
The Costa Mesa Parks and Recreation Commission meets Thursday, October 27, 2016 beginning at 6:00 p.m. in City Council Chambers at City Hall. Due to the brevity of the agenda, HERE, it is anticipated that this meeting may be a short one.
TWO PLAQUE/TREE REQUESTS
There is one item on the Consent Calendar - items that in theory could be handled in one vote without discussion. This one, HERE, is a request for the donation of two plaques and trees in honor of two women, Beverly Barck and Katharine Bequette, who were mainstays of the Costa Mesa Historical Society for years. I see no reason for the commission to not simply approve this request without discussion.
ONE TREE REMOVAL REQUEST
There is one tree removal request, HERE, for 360 Bucknell Road. Having read the staff report I can see why the staff recommends denial of the request.
EXPANSION OF CELL SITE AT SHIFFER PARK
The final item on the agenda, HERE, is the request for guidance by the commission for the proposed expansion of the existing cell site at Shiffer Park. This kind of request is unusual, so the discussion might be interesting.
PARK DISTRICT COMMISSIONER REPORTS
At the end of the meeting we are scheduled to hear the Park District Commissioner Reports - when each commissioner provides us with a kind of "state of their parks" for each of their assigned areas. This will be the first such report for Julie Mercurio, so it will be interesting to hear her put more than two words together for a change.
The meeting will be adjourned to Thursday, November 17, 2016.
