HELP PRESERVE AND ENHANCE
OUR VILLAGE LIFE.
LAGUNA’S FUTURE IS UP TO US!

Welcome to

Village Laguna

What Is Village Laguna?

Founded in 1971, this non-profit mutual-benefit community organization began when concerned citizens opposed the construction of high rise buildings along the legendary Laguna Beach coastline and helped create Main Beach Park. Since then, Village Laguna's goals have expanded to encompass our mission statement to preserve, enhance, and celebrate the unique village character and cultural heritage of Laguna Beach; to foster community spirit and address social needs; and to  work toward restoring and protecting our ocean and coastal habitats. [See Legal Description]

Village Laguna hosts monthly meetings where you will find opportunities to learn and take action to preserve and enhance the village character of Laguna Beach. Visit our Calendar page for meeting dates and times.

The Laguna Canyon Road: Protect & Connect project aims to improve safety for all users, enhance sustainability, and manage congestion along one of the only direct routes to Laguna Beach – the Laguna Canyon Road (LCR) corridor (SR 133). The project is focused on addressing safety concerns, plans to underground utilities, and considering multi-modal options. This corridor provides residents, businesses, and visitors critical access to the city from Interstate 405 (I-405) and State Route 73 (SR 73) and serves as an emergency evacuation route.

The project is currently in the process of collecting community feedback. Community engagement is essential to better understand users of the corridor and their priorities.

This survey should take about 5-10 minutes to complete.

Your responses are very important to us!

Village Laguna was founded in 1971 by concerned citizens opposed to the construction of high-rise buildings along the legendary Laguna Beach coastline. Our efforts led to the adoption of a 36-foot height limit that still protects our city’s unique atmosphere.
