Interested in Serving on OB Planning Board? see below
The Ocean Beach Planning Board is holding a special meeting Wednesday tonight – January 15th – in order to approve election materials for their upcoming annual balloting.
Lacking any controversy or last-minute procedural glitch, the Board is expected to give their stamp of approval to the materials, assembled by an election sub-committee. And that’s all that’s there on the agenda, outside “non agenda public comment” and other perfunctory items.
Wednesday night’s meeting will be held at the OB Rec Center, 4726 Santa Monica Avenue, and will begin promptly at 6:00 pm.
The yearly election itself will be held in March over the course of a few days. If you are interested in serving on the OB Planning Board, go below for more …
