My husband and I have been residents of Laguna Beach since 1967 and home owners since 1969. We have participated in many community events and protests over the years, and I have spoken for and against many issues at the council meetings. I am amazed and saddened at the present stance of the City Council members that they “know best.” Sad.
When asked if I favored a village entrance, I would always say, “Yes, even a sign would be nice on Laguna Canyon Road.” However, only recently did I hear of the shocking price tag and the mention that the village entrance would be a parking structure. A small park and large parking structure shouldn’t be a village entrance.
Frankly, I am appalled that the residents are not able to vote on the project and the price tag. The council needs to let the residents guide them by letting the people vote.
