Laguna Beach residents offer early thoughts on Facilities Master Plan

City representatives met with residents during an evening of public meetings at the Laguna Beach Community and Susi Q Center last week, holding four back-to-back sessions to gather initial impressions and ideas for a Facilities Master Plan that has just started development.

Evening of public meetings regarding Facilities Master Plan

This is the first phase of development for the Plan, which will assess the present and future needs of more than 288,000 square feet of facilities throughout Laguna Beach, including public safety facilities, community and art facilities, parking lots, the library and more. Last week’s sessions were specifically focused on the Laguna Beach Library, Laguna Beach Animal Shelter, Festival of Arts complex, the Laguna Playhouse and the city’s key recreation facilities.

By the evening’s end, the walls of the meeting room were filled with pages of ideas taken from the passionate residents who attended, offering perspective on what needs these facilities have today and how they can evolve to better suit tomorrow’s challenges. These notes are being organized and compiled into a summary that will be posted on the project website.

These meetings were just the kick-off of a development filled with community engagement – there will be many more chances for the public to have their voices heard. Upcoming meeting dates will be posted to the project website, but residents can also send in their thoughts at any time via email to fmp@lagunabeachcity.net.
