Our mission is to preserve, enhance, and celebrate the unique village character and cultural heritage of Laguna Beach. We foster community spirit and address social needs, and we work toward restoring and protecting our ocean and coastal habitats.

Village Laguna was founded in 1971 by concerned citizens opposed to the construction of high-rise buildings along the legendary Laguna Beach coastline. Our efforts led to the adoption of a 36-foot height limit that still protects our city’s unique atmosphere.

Village Laguna strives to protect and extend our natural environment, cooperating with many other like-minded groups, such as Laguna Canyon Foundation, The Laguna Bluebelt Coalition, and Laguna Greenbelt.

Village Laguna supports a variety of community efforts designed to benefit local residents and businesses. We award grants and scholarships, we provide as-needed support for victims of local disasters, and we host popular local events like the Charm House Tour and The Villager of the Year.
