A unpopular proposal to abandon Veteran’s Memorial Building when the Community and Senior Center opens in January has been abandoned. The City Council unanimously voted at the Dec. 9 meeting to direct City Manager Ken Frank to draft a new lease for the building owned by the American Legion Post 2222, although the space will no longer be needed for recreation department or seniors’ activities. The lease terms will be based on recommendations made by Frank at the meeting.

Employees of the Montage Laguna Beach have another place to park their cars. The Orange County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday approved an amendment to an existing parking lease the hotel had with a local church. Laguna Beach United Methodist Church officials were in discussions the past three months with resort staff about renting 20 parking spaces at the church for Montage employees, pastor Doug Williams said. The church, at 21632 Wesley Drive, is a half-mile south of the Montage.

Jane Hanauer wants to make one thing clear: She does not detest Barnes & Noble. The owner of Laguna Beach Books operates one of the few surviving independent bookstores in Orange County - a region that, unlike Seattle or San Francisco, doesn't offer many non-chain alternatives. Anyone who appreciates booksellers with a quirky personal touch can probably check off the ones that have vanished in recent years: Latitude 33 Bookshop in Laguna, the Green Door in San Juan Capistrano, and so on. Hanauer, though, has no qualms about referring people to the retail giant if they're seeking a book she doesn't carry.

Barbara Diamond Neighbors say parking on Temple Terrace during services at St. Catherine of Siena Church is already a problem and some of them fear it will get worse when the church expansion project is completed. However, the church is not legally obliged to fix the problem. Churches are required to provide additional off-street parking only if the assembly area is increased, not for an increase in space for uses such as offices. The proposed addition to St. Catherine's is for office space and meeting rooms.

Staff had recommended denial of Commissioner Bob Chapman?s proposal to replace a retail store with a real estate office and visitors? center on the first floor of a Forest Avenue building. The recommendation was based on the staff?s determination that the abundance of offices in the downtown conflicts with the Downtown Specific Plan?s goal of diversity and the intent of the plan to discourage offices on ground floors.

Many were pleased the powers-that-be listened to those who thought the proposed new lifeguard headquarters and public restrooms on Main Beach were simply too big as originally planned. The city went back to the drawing board and is now moving forward with a ?compromise? project that is 21% smaller, about a foot shorter, and will have less impacts on views. But the jury is still out on whether this project will be built. There are a lot of drawbacks in terms of how the buildings will serve public safety.
