The mission of the Code Enforcement office is to preserve and promote public safety and welfare by enforcing the standards of the Laguna Beach Municipal Code. Code Enforcement investigates possible violations of the code, which include sign regulations, zoning code, property maintenance, business license requirements and the noise abatement program. Code Enforcement also responds to complaints of the Uniform Housing Code and complaints of construction without a permit.
Tenant/landlord issues are typically considered civil matters unless they are building safety and/or unpermitted construction issues. For more information regarding tenant/landlord issues, please visit the Fair Housing website: http://www.fairhousingoc.org/index.html.

At Mission Hospital, patient safety is the highest priority, so we are constantly evaluating our facilities and processes to ensure patients experience the most compassionate care in the safest, most advanced setting. Anytime we identify an area of concern, we take immediate action. Out of an abundance of caution, Mission Hospital temporarily postponed elective surgeries. Our urgent surgeries, as well as our trauma and emergency department are up and running and serving patients. The decision to postpone elective surgeries was a preventative measure but by doing so, we recognize that this action has caused not only inconvenience but also concern for the communities we serve.|
