Costa Mesa

October 02, 2000|Jennifer Kho, (949) 574-4275

Residents from the Back Bay High School neighborhood did not greet the possibility of joining the city very warmly at a meeting Thursday night.

"I don't want any part of annexation to Costa Mesa," said Mark Morris. "I don't think [Costa Mesa] has stood behind us. It didn't help us fight the John Wayne Airport and it dragged its feet and didn't get our water rights. I don't think the consensus of the community is that most people want to go to Costa Mesa."

"I think at this point we're just here to find out what it's all about," resident Lisa Lawson said. "I want to know what changes we'll have to get used to."

The neighborhood, about 65 acres between Del Mar Avenue and Mesa Drive, is an unincorporated part of the county that the city has been working on annexing along with other unincorporated areas since 1996.
