Quite simply- we are stronger together!

Peace Vigil Main Beach Laguna Beach:  Saturday 10/7/17 at 6pm we will fill the Laguna Beach Boardwalk with candles of remembrance of those lost to gun violence. We will come together regardless of skin color, background, religious beliefs and the like to bind together for a greater cause.

It’s an hour or so of our time on a Saturday evening and I’m sure many of us had other plans but let’s gather for those that also had plans this weekend and are no longer with us. Let’s show gratitude for the fact we are still here to create an impact, to share our light and help move our communities to greater cohesiveness, understanding and unification. We can absolutely crowd out the dark with our combined strength and endurance of heart.

Laguna Beach has always been a beacon of love and progressiveness in Orange County so it seems fitting to fill our boardwalk with candles, hugs and tears. Thoughts and prayers are always great, but we need to do more/better. This is a start. Please join us.

This is a peaceful Lagun Beach Community Vigil!

Please bring your family, smiles, blankets and a candle to remember those who we’ve lost. Please share far and wide. See you Saturday!

Laguna Beach puts a citywide ban on smoking

Laguna Beach Bans Public Smoking

On May, 23 2017, the Laguna Beach City Council voted 4-1 in favor of the citywide smoking ban.  This vote made it official.  This will be Orange County‚Äôs first citywide smoking ban.  It goes into effect on June 23, 2017.

The smoking ban also includes vapes, e-cigarettes, and marijuana.

Smoking was already prohibited at the beaches and parks.  The new smoking ban will prohibit smoking not only in the beaches and parks but throughout the city as well.  This includes sidewalks, alleys, pathways, and parking lots.

There will be a $100 fine for the first offense and up to a $500 fine for the third offense.

City staff  is going to decide whether it would make sense to permit late-night smoking in certain specific areas.  The council could consider an amendment in the future, depending on their findings.

The Laguna Beach City Council first gave thought to the idea of a citywide smoking ban after resident complaints.
