The Dana Point Boaters Association (DPBA) are again underway with harbor partners on establishing the Dana Point Harbor Advisory Board (DPHAB). On their website, DPBA said, “We have received many excellent applications from exceedingly qualified candidates from each of the harbor stakeholder groups that will be represented on this new harbor oversight committee. We imagine it’s going to be tremendously difficult to narrow this fine pool of candidates down to the final nine members.” The selection committee will meet to begin the process this month. Once these nine community representatives and two ex-officio members are selected, an introductory meeting will be scheduled in early February where the final membership and bylaws will be ratified, and a calendar of 2018 meetings will be scheduled. These meetings will be open to the public with agendas posted online in advance of the meeting.
