The Dana Point Planning Commission will be conducting a public hearing on April 27 to consider a proposed amendment to the city zoning code as it relates to parking policies within the Town Center-Lantern District.
The proposed Zone Text Amendment and Local Coastal Plan Amendment address issues related to parking within the Town Center Plan area, including parking rations, in-lieu parking fees, and monitoring of available on- and off-street parking, along with other plan goals and policies.
The proposal would make changes, city officials say have become necessary due to the amount of time that has passed since the adoption of the TCP and issues that have come to light as real projects are being proposed for the area.
The proposal also contains a request to officially change the title of the Dana Point Town Center Plan to the Dana Point Lantern District Plan, a measure previously adopted by the City Council which will also re-name the downtown district the Lantern District.
The meeting is set for Monday, April 27, at 6 p.m. in the gymnasium at the Community Center, 34052 Del Obispo Street. Public comments will be welcome at the meeting. Residents may also elect to send written correspondence to the city to be included in the agenda packets distributed to Planning Commissioners before the meeting.
