Piecemakers Village in Mesa Verde will soon serve the 225 congregants of Orange Coast Unitarian Universalist Church. The Unitarian Universalist Church is expected to leave its current home at 1259 Victoria St. and set up shop at 2845 E. Mesa Verde Drive in January, according to Katherine L. Martin, president of OCUUC. "It's really an exciting time for us," Martin said. From 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday, the church will host a community open house at its new location, inviting community members to see their vision for the space, with blueprints available to view.

Re. " Commentary: Banning Ranch traffic agreement is a win for Costa Mesa," (Aug. 4): The traffic impact mitigation agreement for the proposed Banning Ranch project may be good for Mayor Eric Bever and the other councilmen who voted for it, but it is premature and bad for Costa Mesa. It's no surprise that Bever supports the agreement, which silences all official Costa Mesa opposition to the proposed Banning Ranch development. For at least the past 12 years, Bever has vocally supported a 19th Street bridge because, he admits, it would reduce the traffic in front of his home and divert it to 19th Street, in front of other people's homes.
