SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the DP Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.

On April 24, the Dana Point Ocean Water Quality Subcommittee voted unanimously to adopt a resolution in opposition of new offshore oil and gas drilling, fracking and other well stimulation in Federal and State waters off the California coast.
Dana Point joined a number of other State Governors, including Governor Jerry Brown, a wide variety of State departments as well as more than 46 cities across California in taking a stand against new federal offshore oil and gas leases in the Pacific Ocean proposed by United States Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke under President Trump.
The Dana Point City Clerk will forward a copy of the resolution to state and federally elected officials including Secretary Zinke. Further background information on Zinke’s proposal can be seen in a previous story here.
