Three prominent businessmen addressed the council Tuesday evening, in a call to action for council members to push forward with the uncompleted, 6-year-old Dana Point Town Center project.
“We need the Town Center done. We need it to be put on the budget. We need it to be discussed. We need some direction,” said George Luhan, owner of Luciana’s Ristorante.
Robert Beaulieu, a senior vice president with Pacific Western Bank, and Mike Frost, president of the Lantern Village Association—both in Dana Point—echoed the same demand.
“I hope you realize that I am not asking of you anything that you already haven’t personally stated as a goal for your time on the council,” Frost said. “We are all looking for your leadership, the same leadership you guaranteed when running for council.”
Although the next city council meeting is on February 5, no date has been set for the council to discuss and decide on Town Center plans.
City council meetings are held the first and third Tuesday of every month with time allotted for members of the public to speak.
