The Laguna Beach Planning Commission did not recommend a proposed change to the city's zoning law that would have encouraged certain homeowners to preserve rather than demolish houses 50 years and older at its meeting Wednesday.

The amendment would have allowed a house's existing covered parking spaces be used for other purposes such as storage or an artist's studio, provided the change would not prevent a person from parking a car inside the garage.
