Help us trace payments for meetings held regarding the OC Fairgrounds (aka Orange County Fair and Event Center or OCFEC) Master Site Plan from October 2017 to April 2018. A total of $46,000 was spent on meetings outside of the September 2017 and April 2018 public meeting and which was not included in the original contract. Fairgrounds staff hasn't been able to explain what the $46,000 was spent on.
The companies and staff working on the project were:
C. H. Johnson Consulting: Charles Johnson
SWA: Elizabeth Shreeve
HPI Architecture: Lawrence (Larry) Frapwell, Megan Gaunce
The meetings and charges we need help with are:
|Additional Meetings Prior to October 2017||$6,010|
|Credit for Attending April 26, 2018 Board Meeting||($4,000)|
If you met with the consultants between October 2017 and April 2018 outside of one of the public meetings described below, drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org because we want to learn more about how public money was spent.
When Public Meetings Were Held
Public meetings were held at the September 2017 and the April 2018 Board meetings on Thursday mornings. A public workshop was held in The Hangar during June 2017. Small group meetings for vendors, concessionaires, tenants, government entities, and community groups were held during the spring of 2017.
