Costa Mesa Councilman Eric Bever said he is brainstorming ways to revive struggling sections of Harbor Boulevard. “The economy is going to come back,” he said. “And if we can get something going, whether it’s incentives or zone changes, some general plan amendment, if we can get that street ready for when the economy comes back, I think that will be helpful. If we don’t have anything in place, then all the existing uses stand.” Bever said all of the ideas he discussed were preliminary and would have to be analyzed before formal proposals are made.
