Creek erosion protection meeting, 5-0
The City Council approved a staff meeting with the public to scope alternatives to protect against the erosion of Laguna Canyon Creek at the Animal Shelter and begin the required California Environmental Quality Act process.
Staff presented four preliminary proposals for council to evaluate.
"We are looking for feedback from the council," said Public Works Director Steve May.
All five council members turned thumbs up for Proposal No. 2. Two council members said Proposal No. 1 had merit. Councilwoman Elizabeth Pearson was the only one who looked favorably on Proposal No. 4. No one liked No. 3.
The proposals are posted on the city's website, http://www.lagunabeachcity.net.
Staff will return to council in September with recommendations for a project, a budget and projected schedule.
