The Orange County Register writes that a prominent family has offered to save from demolition the historic sewage digester building at entrance to Laguna Beach. Last year, the Living New Deal raised awareness about Laugna Beach resident’s efforts to save the tower.

“In a letter to the city that arrived hours before the City Council was set to debate the building’s fate, philanthropists Barbara and Greg MacGillivray cited the New Deal structure’s historical significance and offered to pay a portion of the renovation cost.

Previous estimates put demolition and renovation at about $2.5 million.”
