Light Agenda For Parks & Rec. Commission Thursday


SHOULD BE AN EARLY EVENING
The Costa Mesa Parks and Recreation Commission meets again Thursday, March 23, 2017 beginning at 6:00 p.m. in City Council Chambers at City Hall.  They will handle a very light agenda, HERE, so it will probably be a short meeting.

INSTRUCTIONAL CLASS PROPOSAL
Following the approval of the minutes from the previous meeting they will tackle item 7a, Instructional Class Proposal, HERE.  There are thirteen (13) individual classes for them to consider.
TREE AND PLAQUE DONATION
Next comes item 7b, the donation of a tree and memorial plaque by Susanna Clemans in honor of her husband, Harvey Clemans.  The proposed tree is a California Pepper, to be placed at Estancia Park - a perfect tree for that venue.
LIAISON APPOINTMENTS
The final item on the agenda, 9a, HERE, is the appointment of Liaisons to the Newport Mesa Unified School District - one regular member and one alternate member - and a similar number as liaisons to the Skate Park.
NEXT MEETING IS THE JOINT SESSION
The next time this group meets it will be at the Joint Session, HERE, with the City Council and Planning Commission on Tuesday, March 28, 2017 at the Costa Mesa Country Club, 1701 Golf Course Drive,  Los Lagos Room beginning at 6:00 p.m. at which they will be briefed on the progress of the Lions Park project - the creation of a completely new library building at the current site of the Neighborhood Community Center, the conversion of the current Donald Dungan Branch Library into a Community Center and the development of the acre of park land that will be harvested by this conversion.  The public is invited to this meeting.  You can read the staff report for this event HERE.  It should be interesting to hear how more than $30 million of our dollars will be spent on this project.  Maybe someone will tell us how the homeless folks that hang out there day and night will be impacted.  We'll see.

California pepper is not the perfect tree to plant. Despite its name, it is not a native tree. It is messy and is on the invasive plant list of the California Invasive Plant Council.

Yes, but many exist in that particular park. It will match the landscape scheme there.
