Parking plan put on hold

A plan to better manage parking in downtown Laguna Beach and the canyon was praised Tuesday by the council but not adopted. The City Council voted unanimously for Mayor Pro Tem Elizabeth Pearson’s motion to only consider the information provided in the Downtown Specific Plan Area and Laguna Canyon Road Parking Management Plan, prepared by RBF Consulting. Councilman Wayne Baglin appealed an administrative decision that permitted the valet parking by hotel staff. It was referred to the Planning Commission, which hears permit applications. The commission also was directed to review the city code for clarification of valet parking. City staff said a coastal development permit issued by the city for the establishment of a preferential parking district around the Mozambique restaurant is not appealable to the commission. Commission staff members disagreed. The council on Tuesday approved the permit 3 to 2,
with the staff’s recommendation. Mayor Pro Tem Jane Egly and Councilwoman Verna Rollinger dissented. That news alone should bring cheers enough to last a while. But even better than that are the details and the desire to bridge disagreements evident at a community workshop on the issue. Councilwoman Tony Iseman, who in the days before the workshop said the move would keep the city from solving its biggest problem parking said after the meeting: “We broke the log jam that had been causing the problems for years.”Briefly In Business
