Our very first Dana Point Harbor Oversight Advisory Committee kicked off in full swing on August 2, 2023. Our members introduced themselves, received updates on the status of the Harbor Revitalization from OC Parks, CEO Real Estate, and of course, the Dana Point Harbor Partners (DPHP). We discussed the goals and expectations for the group, and each committee member shared the concerns of the residents they’ve heard echoed throughout the community. Each member received the Audit of Dana Point Harbor Partners, the lease agreement between DPHP and the County, and an update on the Local Coastal Plan working through the Coastal Commission right now.
Before the meeting finished, we planned out each monthly meeting through January 2024, and planned to select a chair and Secretary at our September meeting. I look forward to the diverse perspectives of those serving our committee and the spirited discussion which will undoubtedly lead to policy recommendations for the Harbor.
