March Newsletter

March 2022– 

Spring is right around the corner! Our country has something to be happy about this Spring, we are slowly coming out of this pandemic! Our country has lost almost 1 million souls to this awful pandemic. Meanwhile, on the other side of the world the Ukrainian people are fighting for survival of their people and land. I was delighted to see Laguna Beach Democrat and Republican clubs come together in a unity rally this past weekend in support of the Ukrainian people. May God Bless the Ukrainian people. 

LAGUNA NIGUEL SUMMER “TROLLEY” SERVICE TO LINK TO BEACH TROLLEYS Laguna Niguel will launch a trolley of sorts (a decaled bus) that will link to certain OCTA bus stops and Dana Point and Laguna Beach trolley systems. I love public transportation and hope this gets the ridership it deserves, residents should take advantage of it, head to the beach and save on gas!
 
COUNCIL MEMBER RAINS SUGGESTS LAGUNA NIGUEL BUILD LOW INCOME HOUSING FOR SENIORS At the MARCH 1st council meeting, Council member Rains requested that the city look into “how we can partner with local developers who are building senior housing. . . for low income.” She referred to the latest project in San Juan Capistrano that incorporates affordable housing into its new city hall project. She continued, “right now there is a great need in our community. . . (and) a lot of new money is coming through federal grant programs that can help us look at putting something like that here in our city.” I’m very interested in resident’s point of view on this proposal, please email me your thoughts.
 
PLAYGROUND CONSTRUCTION AT LA PATA, MARINA HILLS, CHAPPAROSA PARK BEGINS In what has dragged on way too long, finally the much-anticipated playgrounds will be reinstalled after being torn up and not immediately replaced during the COVID-19 pandemic. The completion of all three projects is expected in May 2022.
