<br />The following comments on items on the Newport Beach City Council agenda are submitted by:

<br />Item 1. Minutes for the November 12, 2014 Study Session and Regular
<br />The page numbers below refer to Volume 62 of the City's minutes. The passages in italics are from the
<br />draft, with suggested changes shown in RtFike^••'^^ t underline format.
<br />1. Page 111, Item SS2, paragraph 2: "Council Member Gardner noted that one of the
<br />challenges iwveixe involves people's attitude towards homelessness."
<br />2. Page 111, Item SS2, paragraph 3: "Council Member Petros reported that he was the City's
<br />representative to the Housing and Community Development Committee." [Is this correctly
<br />reported? The closest thing I can find on the Clerk's Roster of Boards, Commissions and
<br />Committees is the "Orange County Housing Commission" to which the City's representative is a staff
<br />person. See also comment on agenda Item 9, below.]
<br />3. Page 111, last sentence: "Rick Stein, Executive Director of Arts Orange County, provided
<br />a PowerPoint presentation to discuss the process, the desire to incorporate the Arts Plan
<br />into the City's General Plan, ..." [The video indicates Rick Stein provided only about 10 minutes of
<br />the Arts OC PowerPoint, while Pat Wayne provided the remaining 22 minutes of what they said would
<br />be a "15 minute presentation." I would suggest moving the identification of their titles (Executive
<br />Director and Deputy Director of Arts OC) to the preceding line and then saying something like: "Mr.
<br />Stein and Ms. Wayne provided a PowerPoint presentation... " ]
<br />4. Page 113, paragraph 5: "Council Member Curry reported that, in 2010, he was privileged to
<br />participate in the Mayor's Institute of the Arts sponsored by the National Endowment of
<br />Americans for the Arts." [I suspect this was intended as a reference to "the Mayor's Institute of
<br />the on City Design sponsored by the National Endowment ofAMerisans for the Arts." See the
<br />minutes from March 23. 2010 (Volume 59, page 427)]
<br />5. Page 113, paragraph 3 from end: "Sara Sarah Wilkinson, local artist, commented on ..."
<br />6. Page 114, last paragraph before "III. PUBLIC COMMENTS: "PatBril, President of the
<br />Board of Directors of the Baroque Music Festival, commented on ..."
<br />Page 120, Item XVIII, paragraph 1, last sentence: "He added that a report on wastewater
<br />rates will be presented to the City Council in January."
<br />Page 124, last paragraph: "Planning Manager Alford addressed CEQA versus project
<br />review, General Plan, LCP and Zoning consistency, key sifi* site development review,
<br />Condition Conditional Use Permit findings, and details of the appeal."
<br />Page 126, paragraph 5, sentence 2: "She added that the consequences of Mariner's POW
<br />Pointe have not yet been felt and that Linda Isle residents..."
<br />10. Page 129, motion: "Motion by Council Member Gardner, seconded by Council Member
<br />Henn, to approve AdminSure, Inc. as fge for Workers' Compensation Third Party Claims
<br />Administration with an annual expenditure of $260,784, effective January 1, 2015." [note:
