The votes were cast, and the the Orange County Registrar of Votes has certified the results of its primary elections, including the votes on Dana Point’s Ballot Measures H and I. On Tuesday, July 5, the City Council will vote on a resolution to “declare and determine” the election results.
According to official results, which were made official on June 27, 6,477 votes (58.7 percent) were in favor of the 2015 Town Center Initiative (Measure H) and had 4,557 votes (41.3 percent) against it. The Town Center and Public Parking Improvement Measure (Measure I) had 4,561 votes (41.4 percent) in favor with 6,449 votes (58.6 percent) against.
Dana Point City Clerk Kathy Ward said the certification from the Orange County Registrar of Voters was received by the city, and declaring it will be the one item on the July 5 City Council meeting.
Once the vote is declared by City officials, a Local Coastal Program Amendment will be prepared and submitted to the California Coastal Commission for review.
