Excerpt from a letter to the Laguna Beach Planning Commission: We would like to express our opposition to the proposed project at 20432 Laguna Canyon Road. This parcel is at present a single-family home. We feel multiunit housing should be closer to Laguna College of Art and Design or in the village entrance and not in our rural neighborhood. This is not the place for a dorm or apartment building. Put it somewhere more densely populated with supporting infrastructure. It's difficult to openly challenge the concept and benefit to the artist community.
