Let Laguna Live! is a nonprofit organization formed by a grassroots group of concerned long-time Laguna Beach property owners who seek a Historic Preservation Ordinance that is voluntary and incentive-based. According to a release from the group, “[Let Laguna Live!] seeks a fair ordinance the puts the interest of property owners on an equal footing with the City.” The group strongly believes any ordinance must require the City to obtain the consent of the owners before placing their homes on a historic preservation list.”
