Regarding the plans for a new hotel on the corner of Pacific Coast Highway and Dana Point Harbor Drive, most of the people at the Planning Commission meetings, are not against the construction of a hotel. The new hotel is just replacing the existing old hotel.

What they are upset about is that the developer of the new hotel has decided that he doesn’t have to follow the established rules regarding building height, needed parking spaces and easement restrictions.

It’s been my experience that if a new neighbor comes into the neighborhood and the very first thing he does is announce to you that he is not going to follow your rules and regulations, he is not going to be a good neighbor.
