June Casagrande Ask Don Webb what he can do for the city of Newport Beach and Webb's first response is to point: He points to the stretch of Coast Highway between Newport Boulevard and the Santa Ana River. He points to a wooden wall that separates the boardwalk from the nature preserve. He points to roadways and structures and traffic-mitigation measures already in place that have helped maintain the city's quality of life for the last 30-odd years.

For years, Newport Beach City Councilman Don Webb has bugged his nephew, film and music video director Marc Webb, to show some of his work at the Newport Beach Film Festival. Looks like it paid off. The festival will mark its 10th anniversary this year when it opens Thursday and will showcase Marc Webb’s feature-length directorial debut, the Fox Searchlight film “(500) Days of Summer” as the closing movie of the festival next week. “He’s been canvassing for the Newport Beach Film Festival forever, but I never had anything to put in,” Marc Webb said.

Mathis Winkler NEWPORT BEACH -- Barely a week into his new job as Newport Beach's public works director, Stephen Badum has already made some drastic changes. He's moved the desk in his office so his back faces the window and put up a couple of car race posters. Gone is his predecessor's hat stand -- Don Webb kept about 20 specimens at City Hall from his 200-plus hat collection. "I'm not really a hat guy," Badum said, as virtual sea gulls chirped from the speakers on his computer.

NEWPORT BEACH — Back then, there was no Newport Coast, no Eastbluff, and Fashion Island had just opened. In 1968, when Don Webb joined the city's public works staff, Newport Beach was booming. Forty-two years later, now as a city councilman, Newport is mostly built out and Webb is getting ready to hang one of his many hats. On Tuesday, Webb will attend his last City Council meeting in an official role and will swear in Rush Hill to fill his seat representing District 3. "Don is like an institution of Newport Beach," Mayor Keith Curry said.

The Newport Beach City Council on Tuesday sided with a man who has fought for several years to build his dream home over the objections of Corona del Mar residents who say his garage would block a picturesque view of Newport Harbor. The City Council voted 5 to 2 in favor of allowing land owner Kim Megonigal’s plans to build on a narrow lot adjacent to Begonia Park in Corona del Mar. Council members Don Webb and Nancy Gardner cast the dissenting votes. The Council Chambers were packed with residents who supported and opposed Megonigal’s plans.

The state recently said Newport Beach is not complying with laws mandating affordable housing. Do you think the city is doing enough to address the need and what more do you think the city should do to address the issue?   This is an example of the state legislature mandating policies that ignore the free market and have negative unintended consequences. Concentrated low-income housing is not the answer. If anything, we need widely dispersed subsidized rental units and senior housing.
