Jody Payne, Dana Point

Exactly what part of “No” does the Beverly Hills Hospitality Group not understand?

I am dismayed that once again the citizens of Dana Point have to spend our time fighting a battle against the five-story Doheny Hotel that clearly no one wants in its present form. For four years, residents have been attending informational meetings, community meetings with the developer’s public relations group and Planning Commission meetings. We have written untold letters, signed petitions and paid for ads to raise awareness about the egregious demands this entitled developer seems to think he deserves.

Now Beverly Hills Hospitality Group has submitted an appeal to the City Council. I am confident that our elected leaders have been paying close attention and will do the right thing.
