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.

Regarding the plans for a new hotel on the corner of Pacific Coast Highway and Dana Point Harbor Drive, most of the people at the Planning Commission meetings, are not against the construction of a hotel. The new hotel is just replacing the existing old hotel.
What they are upset about is that the developer of the new hotel has decided that he doesn’t have to follow the established rules regarding building height, needed parking spaces and easement restrictions.
It’s been my experience that if a new neighbor comes into the neighborhood and the very first thing he does is announce to you that he is not going to follow your rules and regulations, he is not going to be a good neighbor.
