A Big Week Ahead In Costa Mesa

It's going to be a busy week in Costa Mesa.  In addition to the Planning Commission meeting this evening, there's a lot of other stuff going on right through the weekend.  Here's rundown of meetings and events that you'll find of interest.


 City Council Study Session, Conference Room 1A at 4:30 p.m. This meeting is a special study session to discuss "Homeless Supportive Housing Project: Development Model".  Read the full staff report HERE and the specific staff report HERE

It seems to me that the City may be overlooking an opportunity right under its nose.  There's a lovely chunk of land on Fair Drive, just West of the Police Headquarters that has been designated for a Main Library for years.  Since it's clear that nobody is coming up with seed money for a library, that spot looks perfect for the kind of housing site they describe in the staff reports.  I'll be interested to hear just why that land won't work.


Charter Committee Meeting, Emergency Operations Center (EOC) beginning at 5:30 6:00 p.m. (Oops!)  You can read the agenda report HERE.  There are several items on the agenda, as follows:
#6, Review of Minutes of the previous meeting, HERE.
#8A - Financial: Property Tax Inequity presentation by member Hank Panian, HERE.
#8C - Council Members Compensation and Benefits, HERE.
#8D - Unfunded Pension Liability - a PowerPoint presentation, HERE, as shown previously to the Pension Oversight Committee.
#8E - Communication received from Committee Members, HERE.


47TH Annual Snoopy House at City Hall Lawn begins at 5:30. Runs through Christmas Day.
Snoopy House - Santa's In Town begins at 7:00.  Runs through December 18th. 

60th Birthday Party of the Costa Mesa Police Department at Police Headquarters, 99 Fair Drive.
The festivities run from 11 a.m. - 4 p.m. and will include a chance to win a helicopter ride with the donation of a child's gift.  More on this later in the week, but you can read about it HERE.

Let's hope the police party for the 60th is more transparent than the city's party. There are still no answers, yet the bills get paid and paid.
