Default Homeless population gets green light to sleep anywhere in Laguna Beach as long as its public property.

The ACLU recently settled its lawsuit with the city and the city repealed its anti sleeping ordinance. The ACLU is urging Laguna Beach to provide extremely low income housing. The homeless population in Laguna Beach is around 70 people and growing. Without housing how can you solve homelessness?

I was walking on Laguna canyon road yesterday past the old run down tow yards and school bus station and saw a perfect place near the big bend for a small dome village like in downtown LA but smaller! There are a few abondoned cottages there that were low income housing at one time on third street and moved out there to make room for a senior center. I hope the city council likes the idea.

Just keep in mind the better you make it for the existing ones the more you'll draw from elsewhere. Word travels fast. The city needs to coordinate with the county and state on a regional solution.

I can't afford to live in Laguna Beach and I work. Why should they get to live there on the taxpayer? Should we buy them luxury cars too?

Laguna Beach can have the homeless for all I care. Should go well with all the transplants that move there because they saw it on a TV show.

Well, In this economy i think a lot of people CAN afford to live in Laguna. Deep discounts on rents and houses!

Good. I am glad at least one city in this county actually provides shelter for the homeless. Better than Irvine which actually drops homeless people off outside of their city limits! Disgusting.
