What Are Those Big Ugly Trailers Doing At Main Beach Park?

Get used to them, they're going to be around awhile ...

This past Tuesday marked the day when the city got back to being normal (well, Laguna Beach-style normal, anyway), with the art festivals over, the kids back in school, and parking suddenly plentiful.

So with the crowds gone, work crews are preparing to begin , eventually replacing it with spiffy new digs.

The first phase of this project involves putting up a temporary headquarters, which is what those big, ugly trailers on Main Beach will soon be.

Get used to looking at them—they'll be around until January 2014, when the new 6,722-square-foot lifeguard HQ will be operational.

Why leave these drab industrial structures the way they come? Wouldn't it be better to tap the talented artists to work color magic on the exteriors? Like the vertical street banners are. Or task the LCAD students to create a project. These are potential "canvases" that could reflect views about ocean views. BTW how does this visual blight not go through DRB?

Jacob: My guess is that the trailers are rentals, so the city doesn't own them. And since the project is a city-funded project, it doesn't have to go through DRB, as the city council approved it ...

Yes to all ive read so far, they couldve done something to mitigate the look of the trailers, etc. Not just for us but for those tourists who saved up for years to come see Laguna beach the monte carlo of the pacific

mocker: one of the reasons this is happening now is that the summer tourist season is over, so fewer people would be affected. Or at least fewer tourists would be exposed to ugliness, in theory ...

If I'm not mistaken the lease for the trailers is for 2 years.
