Looking for More Parking

Looking for More Parking

Editor: I am concerned about the lack of parking in the city of Laguna Beach. Given that the Irvine Company just opened 1,700 apartments and the Five Points developer is selling 5,000 more homes off of Laguna Canyon Road, where will all these cars park?
