Two residents of Loma Terrace complained to the City Council on July 21 that they returned home from a trip to trip over speed humps and a sign post in front of their home. The humps were installed while Jan and Ed Barbieri were out of town, based on a petition submitted to the city. Barbieri claimed the residents had been advised of a street project, but the notice did not specify a speed hump, bumps or sign posts. “I had made it clear earlier that I didn’t want humps in front of our house because of the noise,” Barbieri said.

Loma Terrace resident Mark O'Connor and the city reached an agreement to settle his suit that accused the city of violating California Environmental Quality Act requirements in its approval of the design and development of the centers. Although disputing O'Connor's allegations, the city agreed to conditions reflecting his concerns. "My primary concern was that the city had not properly analyzed the traffic impacts," said O'Connor, who practices law in Laguna.

The Laguna Beach City Council gave up four parking spaces to save some trees that are in the way of an approved sidewalk on the east side of Laguna Canyon Frontage Road, still keeping the road wide enough to be safe. Neighbors of Frontage Road objected to a recommendation by the Planning Commission and city staff to remove the trees in order to make room for an American Disabilities Act-compliant, 200-foot-long sidewalk south of Woodland Drive and adequate street width for the passage of emergency vehicles.

Tidepools deserve more care, concern In recent weeks, I have noticed an increase in letters regarding the need for education and additional assistance in safeguarding the tidepools in Laguna. As a longtime resident and beachgoer I have been very much in agreement.. Recently Nancy Bushnell addressed the need to preserve the tidepools as a resource for generations to come.

BARBARA DIAMOND It was civil war, not civility that reigned this year in Laguna Beach. A good example: The California Coastal Commission hearing on the proposed relocation of the city maintenance yard. Choosing which side of the meeting room to sit on was like deciding which side of the aisle to sit at a Hatfield/McCoy wedding. The divide in the city culminated in a vitriolic election that poisoned personal, professional and official relationships.
