Draft Downtown Specific Plan Released

The City of Laguna Beach has released its Draft Downtown Specific Plan (DSP), a planning document that serves to guide growth, design, and development standards in Downtown Laguna Beach.  Its primary objective is to preserve and enhance the unique character of the downtown.  The DSP document will be used by the City Council, Commissions, and Committees, City Staff, residents, property owners, businesses, developers, and other government entities as the land use and design policy document defining downtown development over the next 20 years. The DSP also identifies priorities for public improvements to the downtown area.  The full draft DSP document is being released in advance of the August 21, 2019 Planning Commission meeting, where the Commission will conduct their initial review and provide direction to staff on any modifications if needed before recommendations are eventually made to the City Council.
