The Conservation Element is a required part of the City of Laguna Woods General Plan. The Conservation Element update addresses solid waste, renewable energy, biological resources, and cultural resources. The Conservation Element update also includes topics not discussed in the current element such as energy resources and greenhouse gas emissions. Additionally, the Conservation Element update places emphasis on water supply, quality, and management, and includes new analysis of the Laguna Laurel property, which was annexed following completion of the existing Conservation Element in 2003. Flood hazards are now covered in the Safety Element. The updated Conservation Element includes revised key issues, policy objectives, implementation actions, and exhibits. A supporting background report was also prepared.
