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.

As a Dana Point resident, I just wanted to take the time to thank our leaders for one of the dumbest decisions of the year. Instead of a beautiful hotel welcoming guests to Dana Point Harbor and town, we still have a blighted corner where bums beg for money all day and night. What a lovely sight for our out of town guests who travel Pacific Coast Highway south to the Harbor, for them to see the homeless begging for spare change on the busiest corner of the city.
Oh, and what a beautiful sight it is to see a closed, creepy motel, a pitiful liquor store that’s been boarded up for years, and the dirty, homeless down-and-outs begging on the most noticeable intersection of the city.
Good job dummies, you have gotten what you deserve, a view obstructed by blight instead of progress.
I am sure our guests are impressed with your progressive decisions.
