  1. This is over the top for our small town. Is it too late to discuss these 5 hotels? Are the Marriot and our other hotels overbooked? And why put another ” boutique ” hotel by the Blue Lantern Inn? They have been in DP a long time.
    It is enough!

    1. I agree Alane. If we compare to the South Cove project behind Denny’s, we see that the environment and overcrowding is set aside for anyone, not just outsiders, to make a profit at the expense of overcrowding. The existing standards need to increased, not decrease. With newspaper who only protect their advertisers / developers concern for profit, we sell the Sequoia Tree for the profit of timber. Very short sighted. Our lawyers, city council excludes Ms. Lewis is selling off wrecking the city. We need to start the campaign to elect honest and sensible people instead of ‘biased lawyer / developer / investors’. Why not sell tickets these guys, for there is a great train ride through mid America where they can kill all the buffalo they have ammunition. PS. Stop spending; other cities can do it.

  2. The Wave Resort is schedule for a review at The Planning Commission Meeting on July 10 2017.
    The Next Dana Point City Council Meeting is Tuesday July 18 2017.
    You could also meet with The Mayor on June 29 2017.
    You can call 949/248-3501 to try to schedule a (15) minute appointment with The Mayor.
    Thank You for Reading South OC Beaches.

  3. Much of the charm of DP is the unobstructed views of the harbor, the ocean and such. Also, though it is crowded, esp. in the summer, it still feels homey and not too cluttered. DP already has, via annexation, the Ritz Carlton and the Monarch Beach resort. Bringing in another, unneeded and, frankly, unwanted hotel will only increase the traffic, the pollution and reduce the overall quality of life that is uniquely Dana Point. Enough with the greed already; leave the town as it already is–charming.
