Some of the principals involved in the 1990 negotiations to save Laguna Canyon will recount their efforts during the next Laguna Beach Historical Society program, Tuesday, May 28, at the Laguna Beach City Hall Council Chambers from 7:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
The public is invited and there is no charge.
The panel will include Paul Freeman, Norm Grossman, Carol Mentor McDermott, and Mike Phillips, all who served as one of the representatives on the negotiations to purchase land in Laguna Canyon in 1990.
The panel discussion will include what set the stage for the negotiations, the management and process of the negotiations, how a settlement was finally reached, and an explanation of the successful Measure H bond campaign.
The program will be videotaped and is to be televised on the local Cox Cable channel 30.
