Lang Park is perfect and not a potential home for a new pool

Lang Park is perfect as it is, with its spacious green lawn for children’s games by the sea.

Leave it alone.

Do not put a water polo stadium and pool there.

The cacophony of noise echoing from a pool at Lang Park would interfere with the quiet location of the Wesley community.

A 100-car parking lot at Lang Park, for Montage event overflow, would disrupt the only public access to/from the Wesley neighborhood.

This interference would be a disaster if a fire, like the recent one that burned homes above Aliso Canyon, were to cause the residents to evacuate.

There are plenty of undeveloped places for the city to choose from for a public pool.

Lang Park is not an option for a pool.

Like new LBUSD preschool, but question the costs to working parents

I applaud the Laguna Beach Unified School District for opening a new preschool this coming fall. One of the benefits of this preschool is its long hours, benefiting working parents. It does seem, however, that an organization willing to spend megabucks on an extravagant new pool could maybe afford to give a break to those working parents who can’t afford $1,200 a month! Why is this fee not calibrated to income level? I hope they reconsider these fees and allow for suitable adjustments to these fees for those who need it.
