Preserve Orange County and the Laguna Beach Historic Preservation Coalition are fighting back. We have hired California's foremost environmental attorney for historic resources, Susan Brandt-Hawley, to litigate our case. The City violated the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) when it decided that eliminating protections for hundreds of historic resources “could not have a significant impact” on those resources or on the aesthetics of Laguna.
Please help us raise the funds to preserve and protect Laguna, which is treasured not only by residents but by millions of visitors each year. Our lawsuit will help ensure that the historic fabric of Laguna Beach, recognized as a “Historic American Landscape” by the National Park Service in 2017, will not be destroyed. Thank you!
