Concord City Council appoints Pavilion, Measure Q committee members

The Concord City Council made appointments to the new Concord Pavilion Community Outreach Committee and the Measure Q Oversight Committee at its meeting on April 7.

Concord Pavilion Community Outreach Committee
The Concord Pavilion Community Outreach Committee will provide guidance to the Concord Pavilion General Manager on efforts to attract applications from local schools, cultural organizations and the community to bring additional community events to the Pavilion, expanding the use of the venue beyond the concert season.

This new committee was specified in the most recent contract between the City of Concord and Live Nation as a way to re-connect the Pavilion with the community. The committee will assist the Pavilion General Manager in identifying potential community events, but will not have authority to approve event applications.

The applicants appointed to serve a two-year term are LaMar Anderson, Orin Cross III, Elizabeth De La Campa, and Mark Weinmann.

For more information on the Concord Pavilion Community Outreach Committee, contact Joan Carrico, Director of Community & Recreation Services, at (925) 671-3440.

Measure Q Oversight Committee
The Measure Q Oversight Committee provides recommendations to the City Council on the use of Measure Q revenue, reviews the City's annual audit report and presents its findings annually at a public meeting. The committee was formed in 2011 after the Measure Q half-cent sales tax initiative was passed by voters in 2010. The committee continues to serve with the passage of the 2014 Measure Q extension.

The applicants appointed to serve a two-year term are Brian Beckon and Guy Bjerke, and applicants appointed to serve a four-year term are Gregory Grassi, Matthew Hohenstreet, and Diane Sprouse.

For more information on the Measure Q Oversight Committee, contact Jovan Grogan, Deputy City Manager, at (925) 671-3155.
