Commission Application Deadline Friday

A little reminder for you, prompted by a loyal reader this morning...  Friday, December 28, 2012, is the deadline for filing applications to be considered for one of the five (5) vacancies on two important City of Costa Mesa commissions.  I wrote about it earlier, HERE.

There are two (2) vacancies on the Planning Commission and three (3) vacancies on the Parks and Recreation Commission.

As indicated in my previous post, the application can be found online at the city web site, HERE, or get one from the City Clerk.

So, if you're interested in some public service, fire that application off to The City today - or by Friday at the latest.

hopefully we will get Byron de Arakal as a PC, not Harlan (lol). Also, Sessler, and Lucas. No cm4rg members, friends, associates, or relatives. We don't need the hysterics and TV time photo ops for them.

They still have the 3-2 majority favortism tilt. So you can count on no Harlan or any other qualified outsider from their hunta. Reading De Arakal seems like he has self interests only. He certainly has campaigned hard for the appointment.

I hope, because I bet he is a lock for appointment, he understands planning issues better than he seem to grasp the charter, employ pensions and the likes because he seemed to have no clue there, yet he bestowed his ignorance on us at will. Of course we all know what was behind that. Tissue De Arakal?

To the naysayer:
Negative comments about who won’t be on the Planning Commission are misplaced and unfair to both the community and the council members.

The council members are savvy enough to know that a committee with different perspectives will be able to help developers match their projects to the needs and the demands of the community. Small suggestions on the part of an astute observer can lead to adjustments from the developer resulting in win-win solution.

It's critical to have planning commissioners with different points of view. This is important not only for residents but also for developers because a slightly different perspective can help iron out problems and make the whole process smoother, saving both time and money as well as tempers and neighborhoods.

Applicant: to say you want to eliminate anyone involved in CM4RG , relatives, friends, etc is dictatorial. These people are reps, dems, local business owners in the community, teachers, etc, who cause C.M. to actually be a community. To say they should be excluded not only makes you sound ignorant, but excludes the very purpose of a planning commission.

I sure hope we have a better "applicants" than this fool.
