New Parks and Recreation Commissioners Meet Tomorrow
The brand new Costa Mesa Parks and Recreation Commissioners will meet for the first time tomorrow night, Thursday, February 23, 2017, at 6:00 p.m. in City Council Chambers at City Hall. You can read the agenda report HERE.
FIRST THE OFFICERS...
The new commissioners, Kristina Bogner, Leah Ersoylu, Liz McNabb, Kim Pederson and Arlis Reynolds, will be sworn-in - 'tis the swearing season - and will then elect a Chairperson and Vice Chairperson.
...THEN THE AGENDA
The agenda is small - as you saw - so this meeting should be a short one. We'll see some good staff work from the Recreation folks and then the commissioners will sort out the assignment of specific parks to each of them. This was the practice of the previous commission - to provide more individualized oversight on every park in the City. It seemed to be a good idea - most former commissioners seemed to do their homework, visited each park and had substantive comments on each.
So, if you've got a few minutes available at 6:00 p.m. tomorrow come watch the new commissioners in action. As far as I know, there is no percolating controversy with this group. Each of the women selected seem to bring significant qualifications to the table and returnee Kim Pederson is a steady hand. See you there...
