Laguna Beach will likely have one more cop on the beat this summer after the city was awarded a grant from President Clinton's anti-crime package last week. Police Chief Neil J. Purcell Jr. said Thursday that he applied for the grant to "preserve our quality of life" and to stave off gang activity and violent crime. While Laguna Beach has not been immune to such problems, they have occurred more often in other Orange County communities.

City officials on Tuesday criticized an Irvine Co. proposal to "dump" the Laguna Laurel housing project on their city, signaling trouble for environmentalists who saw the offer as an opportunity to prevent development in picturesque Laguna Canyon. "The Irvine Co. has taken a lot of heat for a project that is very unpopular and basically they're saying, "Well, if you have a better idea, fine; otherwise, forget it,' " City Councilman Cameron Cosgrove said.

More than two years after a firestorm incinerated most of the outdoor banners that for 10 years had flown during the summer arts festival, the city hopes to hear soon whether it might get federal funds to replace them. The October 1993 fire, which destroyed or damaged scores of homes, also burned the outdoor banners, which were stored in an artist's studio. Six indoor banners that drape the walls of City Council chambers were spared.
