Policy wonks can get their fill Tuesday. Park and sports field projects will be under the microscope at a special joint meeting of the Costa Mesa City Council and parks and recreation commission at 5 p.m. Tuesday, in conference room 1A at City Hall, 77 Fair Drive.
Also Tuesday, the Newport Beach City Council meets for a study session at 4 p.m. and a regular meeting at 7 p.m. Highlights include renewed discussion of a decision to built Newport Center Park and possible opposition to a state bill that could prevent Newport from someday taking over harbor patrol services from the Orange County Sheriff. Both meetings are in the council chambers, 3300 Newport Blvd.
The next meeting of Newport Beach’s committee on group homes and drug recovery facilities is tentatively set for 6 p.m. Thursday in the Friends room at the central library.
