At the Costa Mesa City Council meeting on Tuesday, September 4, 2018,
the OCME Land Use Agreement for Fairview Park passed uncontested
(5-0 vote) on the consent calendar. This means that the agreement,
as proposed by the Parks & Recreation Commission,
of 20 years plus two five year extensions,
that are not subject to City Council approval,
effectively gives OCME 30 years
of continued operations at Fairview Park.
