The City of Laguna Beach celebrated the opening of the Moss Street Beach stairs with a ribbon cutting on Friday, May 17. The Moss Street Beach access rehabilitation was started in October 2023 and the project was completed in six months.

Assemblywoman Diane Dixon shared her enthusiasm: “Today I was honored to celebrate the completion of the Moss Street Beach Improvements project after advocating for Laguna Beach to receive a $1.2 million state budget appropriation for the project last year.”
