Public invited to community meetings on first phase of Facilities Master Plan

The City of Laguna Beach announced the first phase of developing a comprehensive Facilities Master Plan (FMP). This initiative marks a significant milestone in the city’s commitment to enhancing their infrastructure and services to meet the evolving needs of residents and the community.

The FMP will encompass a wide range of critical facilities, including the Laguna Beach Library, Fire and Police stations, Marine Safety stations, art facilities and parking lots, covering a total area of 288,000 square feet. By evaluating both current and future needs, the plan aims to lay a solid foundation for the growth and improvement of city services, administration and community programs.

“As our city continues to evolve, it’s essential that we proactively plan for the future to ensure that our facilities can effectively support the needs of our residents and community,” said Mayor Sue Kempf. “The Facilities Master Plan will provide a roadmap for strategic development and investment, helping us to create a vibrant and sustainable environment for all.”

The city is committed to engaging with residents and community organizations throughout the planning process to gather valuable insights and perspectives on facility conditions and needs. To kick off the engagement process, the city invites residents to participate in the first round of focused community meetings, which will be held on Thursday, May 16 starting at 4 p.m. at the Susi Q Center. These meetings will provide an opportunity for residents to interact with city staff and representatives from the consultant project team, discuss specific topics and locations considered in the plan, and share their feedback and ideas.
