We are pleased to announce that LRF has submitted the required number of signatures plus a comfortable buffer to place the initiative on the November 2022 ballot. The petitions were turned in ahead of schedule Monday, January 10th to the Laguna Beach City Clerk. Since late August, over 75 LRF volunteers have been obtaining signatures from currently registered voters here, with signatures coming from all precincts and across all political parties. We believe passage of this initiative will raise the bar to bring better projects to Laguna Beach” says Chris Catsimanes, LRF board member. “It will also encourage developers to consider resident’s concerns, leading to faster approvals of good projects.” When the City Clerk determines that there are sufficient qualifying signatures, the ballot initiative will be submitted to the Orange County Registrar of Voters for inclusion in the November 2022 General Election. No special election will be required and no additional public funding would be required for this measure to appear on the General Election ballot.
