A small South Laguna cottage will be demolished to make way for an access shaft to a dangerously deteriorated tunnel and pipeline that carries 100 million gallons of sewage daily between Three Arch Bay and Aliso Beach. The City Council split 3 to 2 on Tuesday to approve the demolition of the cottage as well as other structures on the site. The Fourth Avenue property on which the cottage sits will be used as a temporary staging area to construct a permanent shaft that is part of a proposed renovation of the tunnel and pipeline.

Four Third Street cottages will be temporarily relocated to Laguna Canyon's Big Bend area unless one is moved to Fullerton. The City Council unanimously approved a temporary-use permit to relocate the cottages for 18 months until buyers can be found, but on a separate motion voted 4-1 to negotiate the move of one of them to Fullerton with the bidder. "We've got a bird in hand, and we should take advantage of it," Councilwoman Elizabeth Schneider said. Laguna Beach resident Noel Krijger put in a bid for the cottage at 390 Third St., which he wants to move to a parcel in downtown Fullerton, where he has already renovated a similar home.

No need to run Baglin through mud After a late lunch at the Cottage causing me to reminisce about hobnobbing with Orville Skidmore (the cottage was his home) and his pals, Don Brown and Eddie Holbert, I picked up the Coastline to see an editorial, "Bad case for Baglin," (Coastline Pilot, Nov. 15). Never having time for local politics, this seemed one bad case indeed. Having never met the mayor or being able to recognize him, it just struck me he must be a balanced and proper fellow who has run into some spiteful opposition over various matters along the way. For a hod carrier working muscles daily, $36,000 is a lot of money.

Property owners will have 18 months to comply with all requirements to acquire any of the four Third Street cottages that will be moved to Big Bend on Laguna Canyon Road, pending council approval of a temporary-use permit for the relocation. The council voted 3-2 Tuesday to start the clock ticking the day the cottages are moved, subject to the permit. "I said early on if someone commits in writing that I am for saving the cottages, but I do not favor putting them out there and letting them rot," said Councilman Kelly Boyd, who voted against the relocation.

The City Council agreed Tuesday to permit the demolition of a derelict cottage, overturning a Design Review Board denial and outraging some South Laguna residents. The council split 3-2, clearing the way for the cottage demolition at 31762 Coast Highway. South Coast Water District officials claimed the demolition was essential as part of its planned five-year, $50-million project to stabilize a sewer tunnel and pipeline replacement. It was the third demolition permit for structures on the city's historic inventory that has been opposed in recent months by South Laguna residents.

There are so many people spilling out of the Corner Cottage in the mornings that you might think they're giving the food away. And you wouldn't be far off. With breakfast items starting under $3, this little eatery is a heck of a value. That's not to say you'll rave about every item on the menu, but there is a lot to like about the Cottage and many say breakfast is the best time go. The reason? The breakfast burritos. Office workers, laborers, kids doing homework -- not to mention my son and his buddies -- are all there for the Cottage's version of this Southern California favorite.

DINING OUT Among the handful of our town's landmark dining destinations, The Cottage at North Coast Highway is the one remaining most architecturally intact. Constructed in 1917 as a private home with a sweeping Oriental roof and lush gardens, the charming residence was first opened to diners in 1938 as the Laguna Vista Cafe, which was followed almost 20 years later by the Pancake Cottage. In 1964, the late Harry Moon, a dedicated resident, launched The Cottage as it is today, using some of the original interior artifacts found stashed in a garage, including the solid oak front door and leaded glass sideboard doors.

Opening two enclosed areas is part of the preliminary design plans for a specialty coffee-and-tea and breakfast chain set to move onto hallowed ground in Laguna Beach. Urth Caffe, based in Los Angeles, plans to move into the space at 308 N. Coast Hwy., which was occupied by the Cottage Restaurant for nearly 50 years until closing in late 2012. The Laguna Beach location will be Urth's first in Orange County and co-founders Shallom and Jilla Berkman, husband and wife, couldn't be more excited.

The co-founder of a specialty coffee-and-tea chain said it will be "some time" before the business opens in the former restaurant space of The Cottage. "We really want to preserve and restore the place to its bungalow splendor," Shallom Berkman of Urth Caffe said in a phone message. Los Angeles-based Urth is working with a historical consultant to create artist renderings for the North Coast Highway spot north of Main Beach. The renderings would then move on to a Laguna Beach Historical Society committee for approval, Berkman said.

The "we're open" sign still hung in the window, but any customer entering in search of a meal would have been out of luck. The Cottage Restaurant was open for business Friday, but it wasn't serving eggs Benedict, a Cottage California melt or pasta Catalina. Instead, customers strolled around the once-quaint restaurant picking out deals as owner Jennifer McCulley sold everything that wasn't bolted down. "It is [hard], but I think we're at a point now where we're OK with it," said Julie McCulley, Jennifer McCulley's sister, who helped run the restaurant.

After nearly 50 years in business, The Cottage will close its door after the property was sold. "We just have to get through this and finish," said owner Jennifer McCulley, who has owned the restaurant for the past 12 years and run it with her sister, Julie McCulley. Jennifer McCulley hopes the last day of business will be Dec. 26, but they are still negotiating that, she said. It could be mid-December, she said, adding that the sale is still in escrow. The new owners - she was mum on their names - will continue to use the space as a restaurant, McCulley said.

After nearly six years in North Laguna, Whelan Gallery will be closing its doors at the end of the month. Owner Patrick Whelan said he was told last month that he had until the end of May to vacate the space at 353 N. Coast Hwy. He sublets it from Adam Neeley, who has decided not to renew the lease, Whelan said. According to Whelan, he had no plans to leave any time soon before this. The gallery was "doing alright," he said, and "holding its own. " He said it's not the last that Laguna will see of the gallery.

When passing Big Bend in Laguna Beach, locals may notice a change in scenery. The historic Third Street cottages that once graced the canyon's curve are being dismantled to make way for a new community trailhead and wildlife corridor, headed by the Laguna Canyon Foundation. The public trails are open to all — hikers, bikers and equestrians. For the past four years, the city has attempted to relocate the cottages, but Councilman Kelly Boyd said in June that it was time for removal and said it was possible the cottages would rot if they were relocated.

Four years and about $140,000 later the Third Street cottages will be demolished and cannibalized for materials. The Laguna Canyon Foundation announced Wednesday that demolition will start in the next three to four weeks, a preliminary step in the restoration of the city-owned property at Big Bend on Laguna Canyon Road, where the cottages were moved in an attempt to save them. Salvaged materials will be sold to help fund the restoration. "We have been committed to finding a preservation solution to the cottages, but unfortunately that process has run its course," said Max Borella, foundation executive director.
