Several independent neighborhood associations in Laguna Canyon have established an umbrella coalition, the Laguna Beach Canyon Alliance of Neighborhoods Defense Organization (CANDO), to serve as a common advocate for residents who live along Laguna Beach’s principle artery, according to the organization’s website. A flurry of larger-scale development proposals in the past year — from an […]

Too Much of a Hurry to Approve Rather Than Improve

Too Much of a Hurry to Approve Rather Than Improve

Editor, Thanks to all who spoke out against the massive Longi project proposal way out in the canyon. The testimony showed clear opposition to the size by organizations and individuals from all over town, despite statements that just a few neighbors object.

Editor, (A similar version went to City Council members.) We are in favor of artist work live uses in our neighborhood.

The planning commission is tasked with implementing the general plan through actions including the administration of specific plans. We just don’t see how this project in any way matches the goals of our specific plan. This […]

Ongoing Battle for Canyon Character

Ongoing Battle for Canyon Character

Editor, Twenty-four years ago a letter ran in the LA Times protesting an ad the Irvine Company ran promoting The Laguna Laurel housing development. Ironically, the battle to save the Canyon continues today! So, Mr. Longi, please don’t tell me how long you’ve been working to create your new development because we’ve been working longer […]

Live-Work Project Erodes Canyon’s Character

Live-Work Project Erodes Canyon’s Character

Editor, Please come to the Planning Commission meeting Nov. 13 at 6 p.m. and express your views about the planned 30-unit apartment style housing project that looks like a dormitory right in the middle of our rural, primarily residential, neighborhood. This part of the canyon has a few businesses that were grandfathered in when we […]
