Fairview Park Saturday Adventures For You

There are a couple events scheduled at Fairview Park this Saturday, June 22nd that might be fun and informative for you all.

First, beginning at 8:00 a.m., the City Staff will conduct an unusual meeting of the Fairview Park Citizen's Advisory Committee.  This one will be a guided tour for the committee members and any member of the public who might care to join them.  There will be no votes taken on any issue, but the public may comment.  This is going to be a very casual, probably very enjoyable, morning in what has been described by many as our Crown Jewel.  It is anticipated that the tour will take a couple hours.  Here's a photo showing where to meet up Saturday morning.

Then, right across Placentia Avenue at the Goat Hill Junction Train Station the good volunteers from Mesa Emergency Service Amateur Communications (MESAC) will provide an opportunity for members of the public to participate in the National Amateur Radio Field Day.  As indicated in the flyer below (click to enlarge it) volunteers will be on the site from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.  This is a great opportunity to learn about the operations of 2-way radios from folks who really know their business.

I think people should go there that day, enjoy the park, and help them realize the place is perfectly enjoyable as it is :) Ballparks not needed

We have thousands of fields and a job up here for Stevie if he wants to come home to Stockton! No need to ruin Costa Mesa.

Come home Stevie, we'll even let you tip us over!

I suggest you go and enjoy it one last time before it becomes Sheriff Steve Mensinger's Sports Complex.

We have kids and they play sports, but there has to be a balance. That's what makes it a community. You have places and elements in place for everyone.

Costa Mesa is not just about Pop Warner, Estancia Football and Soccer. We are a diverse COMMUNITY.

There are enough sports fields in this city between Jack Hammett Sports Complex, TeWinkle Park, TeWinkle Middle School, Luke Davis Field, the available School District sites, Fairview Developmental Facility, Balearic, Jim Scott Stadium, OCC and more.

The problem might really be lighted fields. Let's work with that and not destroy Fairview Park and turn it into a sports complex. There is a whole other group that makes up our community who keep getting screwed over by this council in favor of what they care about. That's not community caring at all, that is really caring only about yourself.

Fairview park is used by many people for many different uses. It is designed as passive. Putting in more sports fields for OUT OF TOWNERS to use. Not. Track meets, football and highschool sports have room. Local soccer and baseball have room. Out of towners need to work their own cities. Checking the records from a few years ago to the reports on field use today, they have changed. Numbers say, what the politico want them to say. The lights are another problem, trash and maintainance, watering and policeing and don't forget sound. Income from these fields is minimal. The fees waived for non profits and the fees returned as donations make a low return. The net gain make the cost of these fields, at our expense, to high. The loss of the open space devestating As a baby boomer, I see less need for sports parks and more need for multi use passive parks.
