View Preservation and Restoration

The City Council recognizes that both outward views and sunlight onto properties contribute greatly to the quality of life in Laguna Beach. The View Preservation and Restoration ordinance establishes a right for property owners to preserve selected viewing locations and restore pre-existing views that have been impaired by trees or other vegetation. The ordinance is managed by an Associate Planner under the supervision of the Director of Community Development. The Associate Planner is responsible for processing view claims and working directly with the claimant and the vegetation owner. The Associate Planner provides staff support to the mediator and to the View Restoration Committee.
