A Very Busy Week Ahead In Costa Mesa

Here's a quick look at what's happening in Costa Mesa during this upcoming week.  There are lots of meetings, some with overlapping schedules, so diligent observers of civic matters may have to make some tough choices.

Monday, February 24, 2013 at 6:00 p.m. in City Council Chambers the Costa Mesa Planning Commission will hold another meeting.  You can read the entire agenda HERE.  The agenda is small, and may result in a fairly short meeting, which might find Chairman Jim Fitzpatrick twiddling his thumbs again,  because one of the biggest items - a 250 unit apartment complex proposed for Baker Street - may be continued to future meeting.

Tuesday, February 25, 2013 the Costa Mesa Sanitary District Board will meet at a new location - Sonora Elementary School, 966 Sonora Road - beginning at 5:30 p.m.  The agenda is HERE.  This is the meeting at which the Board will likely make a decision on the much-discussed plan to change the way we, their ratepayers, handle our Organic Waste - green waste and food waste.  You can read the two staff reports on that issue - the review of the Organics Recycling Program Enviornmental Review, HERE and the CR&R Environmental Services 2nd Amendment to Contract, HERE.  As I've said before, this looks like a proactive plan to manage our Organic Waste in light of legislation that will severely limit what can be placed in landfills.  This meeting was moved to Sonora School to provide a larger venue - and one in the north part of town - so interested persons may attend and express their views.

Wednesday, February 26, 2013 the Costa Mesa Charter Committee, facilitated by Dr. Mike Decker and Dr. Kirk Bauermeister, will meet again beginning at 6:00 p.m. in Conference Room 1A at City Hall to continue their attempt to cobble together a Charter to be placed on the ballot in November.  The agenda is HERE.  To give you a flavor of how these meetings have gone you can read the proposed Minutes from the last meeting HERE.  The committee will review the current charter document, HERE; discuss Mayor Jim Righeimer's favorite topic, Paycheck Protection, HERE and Eminent Domain, HERE.  And, you can read Correspondence from Committee Members HERE.  Based on information distributed at the last meeting, the goal is to finalize and vote on the Preamble and Charter Document on March 12th.  The Committee will present their work product to the City Council on March 18th, preceded by a reception for them at 5:15 that day.

Thursday, February 27, 2013 the Costa Mesa Parks and Recreation Commission meets at 6:00 p.m in Council Chambers at City Hall.  You can read the agenda HERE.  They have a fairly short agenda, but there is one big item scheduled for discussion - the Field Allocation and Current Facility Outline, HERE.  Finally, we get to see some numbers!

Also on that date Assemblyman Allan Mansoor is holding a Town Hall meeting at the Costa Mesa Neighborhood Community Center at Lions Park from 6 - 7 p.m. to discuss issues that he feels are important to constituents as he moves forward with his attempt to win the Second Supervisorial seat occupied by John Moorlach.  Mansoor faces an uphill battle against Michelle Steel, who has received support from most of the big dogs in the OC GOP.

All of Riggy's bootlickers should take note of Mansoor's fall from grace.

For years he dutifully did what his masters in Newport told him. Now they've kicked him to the curb for Michelle Steel.

This is how it will eventually go for you too. So enjoy your unreadable blog, your water job, your planning and committee seats. Eventually you will be phased out and thrown to the reject pile to join Allan and Paul Bunney.

The rest of us will always remember how you sold us out.
