There are 22,000 people in Laguna. Most of us are not merchants, nor members of the boards of the Playhouse nor of the Festival. Yet if the current plan is put into effect, we, the residents of Laguna, will be the most affected.
The expenditure of the astronomical sum of $35 million to $55 million will seriously impact our lifestyle. There will be no money left for the buses and shuttles. There will be no money for infrastructure and capital improvements.
We started years ago with a plan for a park and a far more modest and less costly parking structure. I would hope that we could go back to that original plan designed by Studio One Eleven that won the city-sponsored contest for best village entrance proposal.
