Help Protect Mariner’s Mile
PRESERVE NEWPORT BEACH’s
The 1.3 mile stretch of Pacific Coast Highway known as Mariner’s Mile is part of the heart of Newport Beach! Let’s work together to encourage the City and developers to maintain the charm and historical value of MM. We need to stop the widening of PCH and enhance this neighborhood village. JOIN US!!

Preserve our Citizen-based Local Government

Who’s Electing Our Mayor?
Measure B, on the Jun 7th BALLOT, proposes changing the present system of the city council electing the mayor to a one-year term annually to one in which the general electorate elects the mayor for a four-year term.
Many are calling it the most important issue ever facing the Newport Beach electorate. The question is, “Who should elect our mayor?”
Speak Up Newport will present representatives discussing both sides at their upcoming May meeting, scheduled for Wednesday, May 11 at the Civic Center Community Room. The event begins with a 5:15 p.m. reception, followed by the program at 6 p.m. Read More
A Letter from the Board
“Enhance Our Community’s Quality of Life and Do No Harm”
We need your help to Respect, Protect and Preserve the Residential, Commercial and Environmental Qualities Of Our Bayside Town.
Our Coalition is pro responsible development, supporting projects that are compatible with the surrounding communities. Our members are residents, property and business owners who have already successfully influenced important issues – including Auto Nation Porsche Proposal along West Pacific Coast Highway, the Mariner’s Mile Revitalization Master Plan (PA2016-081), the Newport Beach Village (PA2017-253), Banning Ranch, and the Museum House.
In our view, Newport Beach City Council and the Planning Commission must use the General Plan Update process to work with the stakeholders to build community consensus to guide the future of Mariner’s Mile. Without a clear vision guiding the transformation of Mariner’s Mile, ongoing efforts will continue to be suboptimal and disappointing. We propose a Mariner’s Mile Steering Committee composed of the following stakeholders: CalTrans, Property Owners, Local Merchants, and Residents, and who will work within the General Plan Update structure to shape the future of Mariner’s Mile.
Together we can transform Mariner’s Mile into a thriving coastal gateway destination where residents and visitors can work, play, dine and shop in a safe environment. Imagine the possibilities of building a coastal village for people to enjoy.
