The New Deal: Seeking Compromise in Legacy Planning

In preparation for another public workshop to review a parking lot extension in place of a parking structure, the Laguna Beach City Council is wisely considering better alternatives albeit with a proposal entrenched in legacy planning.

In "Path Opens to Town Entry without a Car Garage" Jennifer Erickson writes "Rita Conn, chair of Let Laguna Vote, which draws support from political liberals and conservatives, called on the council to postpone finalizing the land deal until after next week’s workshop as a “good faith” measure, and to rescind its original vote approving the project."

Meanwhile advocates for a balanced mobility plan in Laguna Beach remind the Council, planning officials and concerned residents that "You don't know a thing about parking until you read this book."

The Workshop is Tuesday November 12 at 6:00pm City Hall.  -LS
