General Plan workshop set, with bonus for kids

Costa Mesa officials have scheduled a General Plan update workshop for next week, this time with a family-friendly element.

While parents and other interested parties attend Tuesday's meeting from 7 to 8 p.m., children can make cars using cardboard boxes on the Civic Center lawn, 77 Fair Drive.

After the meeting, "The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie" will be screened. Attendees will get four free tickets to the movie and free corn dogs and snacks, according to a city news release.

Those interested are encouraged to register by Monday. To reserve a spot, contact Martha Rosales at (714) 754-5270 or City officials said walk-in space will be limited.

The General Plan, a state-mandated document that's updated about once a decade, provides guidance on future city developments and must reflect changes such as economic growth and housing needs.
