Garden Grove

Meetings proceeding with e-help

TELECONFERENCING has become the way to hold meetings without violating “social distancing” protocols (Shutterstock).

Electronics to the rescue.

The social distancing policies now in place to combat the coronavirus outbreak are expected to slow the growth of the disease, but have led to the cancellation of many meetings, including those held by government agencies.

But now with modern technology, some of those meetings can proceed.

For example, the April 16 Garden Grove Planning Commission’s regular meeting will go on as scheduled, but via teleconference.

Planners will consider the following items:

  • a site plan and tentative tract map to subdivide a 47,286-square foot lot currently occupied with a single family home into four residential lots with a private street at 11712 Lampson Ave., between 9th Street and West Street;
  • a conditional use permit to expand the operating hours and parking lot for the MAP sports facility at the southeast corner of Western and Lampson avenues;
  • a discussion on limiting the number of massage establishments in the city.

The meeting is at 7 p.m.

Additionally, the Garden Grove Chamber of Commerce’s Government Affairs Committee meeting will held through videoconferencing on Friday, April 10 from 7:30 to 9 p.m. The popular Zoom system will be employed.
