COSTA MESA Council votes to extend Job Center closing date The City Council voted early Wednesday to keep the Job Center open three months past the June 30 closing date that was set last month.

While the Job Center remains open, business leaders and community activists will search for other locations, new sources of funding and other ways to run the center to take it off the city's books.

A grand opening celebration is set for Aug. 4. The skate park at TeWinkle Park was scheduled to open at the end of May, but contractors couldn't make up all the time lost to an unusually wet winter.

Last summer at a Costa Mesa Parks and Recreation Commission meeting, Lt. Mark Manley of the Costa Mesa Police Department painted a compelling picture of the culture that has infiltrated the Volcom Skate Park. Underpinning that culture — often tagged as "skate free or die" — is an open defiance of state law and Costa Mesa's own municipal code, which requires the wearing of a helmet, elbow pads and knee pads when skating at a public skate park (in this instance, Volcom). Of particular note was his account of a handful of physical confrontations with skaters — all from outside Costa Mesa — who became belligerent when contacted by park rangers and officers because they weren't wearing safety equipment required by law. In each instance, arrests were made.

Characterizing it as Costa Mesa's "most hazardous public park," the chairman of the Parks and Recreation Commission on Thursday called on the city to enforce rules requiring that skateboarders wear safety gear at Volcom Skate Park.

The city of Costa Mesa will encourage residents and business owners to let the sun shine in — through new skylights, and onto new solar panels, and onto “green roofs” covered with plants. The City Council will vote Tuesday on final approval for a green building incentive program designed to encourage more environmentally friendly and energy-efficient features in homes and businesses. If the council agrees, a nine-month program will begin Wednesday and will be offered for the first three months in conjunction with the popular residential remodeling incentive program, which is in its third year.
