We became alarmed at the changes made in the lobby of the building. We ask that the historic desk and Museum graphics be reinstated, along with the displays of Neutra projects and books for sale, that used to line the shelves.

The original motivation for this show was the threat in 2010 to the Mariner’s Medical Arts Complex in Newport Beach, (still at risk). In 2016, we have the threat to several of our buildings at Orange Coast College, where the Board there has declared itself ready to destroy about three of the rare examples we were able to get built there in the early 50s Why? Not to build on their sites, but “to clear the center of the campus for a green area!” or for parking.
This is all scheduled for some time this year. Aside from individual letters to the college, we’ve come up with a petition whereby you can sign, making any remark you care to, about the value to history, to have these examples survive.
This would appear to be one of our last hopes; would 1000 signatures sufficiently impress these folks to pressure them to change course?
Our 1958 Connell House in Pebble Beach continues to be in jeopardy, despite it’s having been listed on State and National lists as a valued asset. All this has not convinced the owner to back off her determined program of demolition and replacement by a McMansion. We continue to rely on local champion Sally Aberg for current status. She can be reached at email@example.com
URGENT! SUPPORT NEEDED NOW!
Our 1958 Connell house in Pebble Beach is in jeopardy! Funds are still needed to complete its nomination for National as well as State Monument status. The hope being that such would convince the current owner to move on, and find another site for its McMansion!
We continue to support the sterling efforts of Sally Abord, who has organized the fund raiser through:
Everyone; let’s join and pledge $10; more if you can! $3000 needed NOW!
Prevent another Gettysburg!
