General Plan Advisory Committee + Fitzy Replacement (Amended)**

In a press release today, HERE, Costa Mesa Director of Communications Bill Lobdell announced that the City has launched a recruitment for nine members and two alternates for the General Plan Advisory Committee and a separate, but simultaneous, recruitment for a short-term replacement on the Planning Commission for recently resigned commissioner Jim Fitzpatrick.

Applications must be received by 5:00 p.m., Friday, June 29, 2012.  The Planning Commission, using as it's authority a provision in the Planning Commission bylaws, will make the Fitzpatrick replacement at its July 9th meeting.  See the press release for other details.

**NOTE:  After some confusion dealing with a misinterpretation of the Planning Commission bylaws,  it has finally been determined that - as I suspected earlier -  the Planning Commission DOES NOT have the authority to appoint a replacement for Jim Fitzpatrick.  The process will apparently be that the recruitment for his replacement will take place as planned.  The Planning Commission will review the applications at its meeting of July 9th and make recommendations to the City Council, who will choose Fitzpatrick's replacement from the applicants at its meeting of July17th.

I heard one of the requirements for the temporary Planning Commission seat is that you need to be able to eat an entire box of Twinkies within 5 minutes.

Being able to eat the box of Twinkies in 5 minutes is only one of the requirements, after the box of Twinkies are consumed the applicant must then be able to kiss the rear-end of one bloated and red-faced Mayor Pro-Team. This is where the Planning Commission will be faced with a great challange, because as far as anybody knows Fitzy has set multiple records when it comes to these two requirements. The third and fourth requirements are even better, but we'll leave thos for a later time.
