Two years after generating dozens of emails and letters in opposition, the five-story, 258-room Doheny Hotel proposal is back up for public review and comment, as a preliminary environmental impact report recently became available.
According the report, the proposed hotel would be located on a 1.5-acre plot at the corner of Dana Point Harbor Drive and Pacific Coast Highway, currently occupied by a Jack in the Box restaurant and the Dana Point Harbor Inn, both of which would be demolished. The proposal lays out plans for a two- to five-story hotel.
The report, prepared by the Irvine-based firm UltraSystems, is available for public review at www.danapoint.org.
Public comments will be included in a final report before being presented to the city’s Planning Commission.
Comments are being accepted by Erica Demkowicz, the city’s senior planner, until Friday, September 6. Letters can be mailed to the Dana Point Community Development Department, 33282 Golden Lantern, Suite 209, Dana Point, CA 92629 or emailed to email@example.com.
