City of Laguna Niguel - Landscape Review Process

Most changes to landscape for properties other than single-family residences require landscape approval. For commercial properties, this typically involves a site development permit review. For homeowners’ associations with large HOA-maintained landscaped slopes, the City created a streamlined review process. This process can be used for routine maintenance of landscapes and irrigation and replacement of dead or diseased trees or other plans, among other things.

You can find more information by searching for Form 220 on the City’s website and linked below or by contacting the Planning Division at planning@cityoflagunaniguel.org or (949) 362-4300. The City is obligated to comply with certain state mandates regarding landscape projects and irrigation; however, our goal is to help you get the approvals needed to complete your landscape projects with as little hassle as possible.

Avoid a Condo Kerfuffle: Critical Success Factors to prepare Your Board (and Residents) for Pipe Replacement

By Eric Lecky, SageWater

Piping systems are failing at an alarming rate across the country as our infrastructure ages. From domestic supply lines (hot and cold drinking water), to drain, waste, and vent systems, to heating and cooling piping, it's all starting to go. Because these pipes are usually out of sight behind sealed walls and floors, communities often fail to realize how dangerous their situations may be. While condominium boards typically budget for maintenance projects that are routine and visible (landscaping, resurfacing parking lots, etc.), they rarely budget for the things "inside the walls," which often means a surprise expense when it becomes necessary to replace the piping in a building.

However, with proper planning, boards can identify problems, secure financing, and rectify the situation with minimal disruption to the lives of residents.
