The Planning Commission will discuss at Wednesday’s meeting potential
changes in the city’s zoning ordinance that would set parameters on the
size, height and lot coverage of residences in town.
Concerns have been growing about the cumulative effect of the
increased sizes of homes and the loss of older “Laguna charmers” and
Laguna charm to make way for more opulent residences.
“Mansionization’ was talked about a lot in the visioning process and
interested people probably will want to attend the meeting,” said Carolyn
Wood, Laguna Canyon Conservancy president. “People complain they don’t
know what is happening. This is their opportunity to hear what is being
discussed and to express their opinions.”
The commission meeting will begin at 7 p.m. in the City Council
Chamber, 505 Forest Ave. For more information, call 497-0361.
