mansionization
 n.— «I believe that mansionization will not be a tough issue. The town clearly wants no more Mar Vista-sized houses. even those who have been reluctant to place speci ic limits in our antimansionization ordinance now seem resigned to do just that: to put teeth in an otherwise toothless law, to declare just how big is too big. The method of measuring still remains to be determined, but the problem is soluble. Many towns in California now have specific building-size limits. We can join larkspur, Carmel-by-the-sea, santa Barbara. even Monterey Park has such an ordinance. why not laguna? a specific ordinance will help preserve our neighborhoods.» —“Village Voices” by Arnold Hano Village Laguna Newsletter (Laguna Beach, California) Oct., 2006.
