Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
This collection comprises municipal documents and other materials related to the planning and development of the City of Newport Beach, California.
Incorporated in 1906, the City of Newport Beach was initially a small, isolated tourist destination, with seasonal residents occupying self-supporting villages such as Lido Isle and the Balboa Peninsula. During the 1940s and 1950s, more permanent residents moved to Newport Beach due to importation of water from the Colorado River, highway expansion, and the growing military population.
