It seems like the current recommendations for San Juan Capistrano's advisory panels seek to undo some of the changes pushed by former Councilmen Mark Nielsen and Lon Uso, who had both argued for a little more turnover on city commissions.
The commissions are voluntary posts with no pay, but some of the folks holding the spots have been there for well over a dozen years.
In this round of recommendations, though, the council is looking at bringing back Kathy Hooper and some other commissioners who'd been removed. One other big change: Bruce Tatarian's name is gone from the list of recommended Planning Commissioners. Tatarian was well respected in that post, but he was also a trusted advisor and friend of Nielsen.
The council meets tonight (Tuesday, Jan. 18) at 6:30 p.m. at City Hall, 32400 Paseo Adelanto.
Here's the staff reports.
