Laguna Beach is working hard to ensure natural disaster situations do not occur for lack of preparation.
The floods of December 2010 caused business, home and other property damage assessed so far at $12 million.

The City Manager of Laguna Beach and members of the Council, under the direction of Councilmembers Elizabeth Pearson and Kelly Boyd approved an agenda bill recognizing the city as a disaster prone area that will inevitably face another similar disaster situation.
Councilmembers, residents and business owners have offered ideas on how the City and community members could be better prepared for the future. In an effort to create an action plan, the City will sponsor a public workshop facilitated by a third party.
The overall goal of the workshop will be to develop a “what to do plan” before, during and after several types of disaster events such as flood, fire and landslide.
The proposed workshop will be held in the Laguna Beach City Council Chambers, but a date was not included in the agenda bill. Estimated cost of the workshop is $5,000, available from salary savings in the City Manager’s Budget.
