OC Dana Point Harbor officials announced Wednesday that story poles for the proposed buildings recommended as part of the Harbor Revitalization Plan, will go up on January 31.
The story poles will be erected to illustrate the ridgelines and peaks of the proposed commercial core and dry boat storage buildings in the conceptual plan, the notice said.
“This is a small step in the process toward finalizing our Coastal Development Permit application,” said Brad Gross, harbor director. “Public hearings are still a long way off and there will be ample notice given when such meetings are scheduled.”
Specific construction designs must be completed and included in the application to the California Coastal Commission for a Coastal Development Permit.
The $140 million Harbor Revitalization Plan has been in the works since 1997.
The Coastal Commission approved the implementation plan for land-side improvements in January of 2011.
Land-side plans include the removal and replacement of the harbor’s commercial buildings and the creation of a waterfront plaza.
The story poles will be certified by the county’s land surveyor and then removed on February 7.
