Ocean Beach Planners to Hold Virtual Meeting – Wed., April 1

In an historic first, the Ocean Beach Planning Board will meet this Wednesday via Zoom, which means they’ll have a virtual meeting over the internet. And anyone who wishes can observe and participate – see the information about how to be included either on the official agenda, posted below, or just before the agenda. But this is a first – created by the COVID-19 crisis (and unless the Board has practiced this method, it could be a tad bumpy – but fun! Check it out!)

The meeting will begin at 6 pm Wednesday, April 1 (… and no, this is not an April First joke). Usually the Board meets in the community room at the OB Rec Center.

Most of the agenda has to with the Board’s recent election, appointments to the Board and the election of the new Executive Board. The volunteer panel of community planners will certify the March election results, consider appointing veteran Jane Gawronski to the vacant District 2 seat, and likewise, the same with Derek Dudek who is seeking appointment to the vacant District 1 seat. Finally, the Board will elect their Executive Board, which includes the Chair, Vice-Chair, Secretary and Treasurer.

Bumpy, maybe, but we (many of the Board members) had a quick practice run and made sure everyone knew how to sign onto the meeting. So we should be good to go.

We also have some of our SD reps who will be signing on to give updates and reports.

Please note that all public comment will be conducted and managed via the CHAT feature of zoom.

Email from Chair Andrea Schlageter: “All, as you saw it looks like our public meeting got hacked. In accordance with the Brown Act I do need to adjourn the meeting tonight.

Once I figure out a way to post the meeting information without this happening the OBPB will be holding a emergency meeting,

My sincerest apologies for anything you may have seen that offended.

Chair, Ocean Beach Planning Board

Unfortunately, Zoom is too unsecured and is easily hacked. I read of an instance where a presentation was interrupted with porn images and hate speech. It’s a shame that people have nothing better to do but I guess this is a form of on-line entertainment for cooped up idiots.
