City officials tonight will discuss asking the state for money to acquire the 200-acre DeWitt/Platz site in Laguna Canyon and 245 other acres, all by eminent domain. Laguna Beach was allocated $10 million under the California Wildlife, Coastal and Park Land Conservation Act, which provides grants for acquisition of natural lands. Thus far, Laguna Beach has spent $3 million of that. Formal application is required to the state for the remaining funds.

Not much grumbling goes on at Thurston Trailer Park about the lack of a clubhouse, swimming pool or ocean view--niceties available at the city's two other mobile home parks. Instead, Thurston residents, most of whom have incomes low enough to qualify for financial aid, feel pretty fortunate.

The Laguna Beach City Council has approved spending $555,000 to help develop the county's first low-income housing project where people infected with the AIDS virus can live independently.

Laguna Beach's popular Festival of the Arts, locked in a bitter dispute with the city over how much rent it should pay, is making overtures to San Clemente about relocating there, a festival official confirmed Thursday. The festival's directors sent a letter to San Clemente this week saying they want to negotiate exclusively with that city in seeking a new home for the event, a summer fixture in Laguna Beach for 68 years.

The City Council allocated $15,000 this month to help fund the Day Worker Center, which coordinates the employment of unskilled day workers. David Peck, chairman of the Cross Cultural Council, said before the center opened, laborers soliciting work on street corners were at risk of getting hit by cars. The site costs $3,000 a month to pay two full-time employees who act as translators to coordinate the hiring. The center opens at 6 a.m. Monday through Saturday.
