(COSTA MESA, CALIFORNIA) – January 4, 2016 – It was announced today that signatures have been presented to Costa Mesa City Clerk, Brenda Green. The signatures will be delivered within five days to the Registrar of Voters for official certification.

Costa Mesa voters, unhappy with developers’ control of their city, rallied around Costa Mesa First’s initiative. This initiative focuses on the residents’ vision and gives them the chance to have input on larger projects in the city.

Costa Mesa First is grateful for the overwhelming support from citizens and the dedication of its many volunteers. Over the past months, signatures were gathered by volunteers throughout the city. Some of those wishing to sign had to be turned away, as they were not residents of Costa Mesa. Jay Humphrey stated, “I am amazed by the support from every part of the city. I kept hearing from residents about their concern with the current building trend.”
