YTD Calendar

The following is a running list of past events that were posted to the SPON calendar in 2018.

January 2018

January 9 City Council Meeting
Civic Center Council Chambers

  • City Manager’s Insider’s Guide (Preview of upcoming meeting)
  • Agenda, when published, available here (usually by 4:00 pm on Thursday before meeting)
    • 4:00 pm: City Council Study Session (tentative)

January 13 @ 2:00 – 4:00 pm SPON GPAC group meeting
Santa Ana Heights Fire Station – Community/Training Room
(corner of Mesa and Acacia)

  • This third meeting of SPON’s independent General Plan Update Advisory Committee hopes to build on the momentum and enthusiasm established at the first two energetic and productive meetings held at this location on November 18 and December 2. Originally planned for January 6, the date was moved so participants could hear City staff’s take on the Update process at the January 9 City Council meeting. Since the latter will not be happening (see above), we hope to use the January 13 SPON GPAC meeting to formulate a message to take to the Council.
  • Click here to RSVP – all are welcome, but these are popular events and we need to know your plans so we don’t exceed room capacity!
