November 14, 2014

During the last 24 hours your Dana Point Boaters Association has been working almost nonstop to obtain the Dana Point City Council Agenda Item #18 Documents to post to our website.  Unfortunately, the notification came out yesterday but, the actual agenda document are mostly unreadable.  Today we've been working all day to track down the original documents and complying them together into a readable format on our own.  We've been in email & phone correspondence with OC Dana Point Harbor & City of Dana Point.  The City this morning was able to provide use with a CD in the original Word .doc formate and also .PDF files which we have now complied herein.  The following document originally contained 520 pages, you will note, pages 55 thru 165 are NOT numbered because these pages were removed and reinserted by us from the original document file provided to the City.  Please remember some files are very large and may take a bit to download depending on your internet service provider. We have complied this document into the following 6 break sections: November 18th Agenda (Please DO NOT use the agenda link for document, it's mostly unreadable for over 200 pages) Item #18 Section #1, Section #2, Section #3, Section #4, Section #5 and Section #6. (NEW)!

Dana Point Boaters Association CDP Appeal Public Records Requests to the City of Dana Point and OC Dana Point Harbor.

he following is the formal response from OC Dana Point Harbor to our Public Records Request, which only included one section 6.2.5 per our requests "OC Dana Point Harbor Response".  As of this writing we have yet to receive any further information from our request.  We do find it "strange", that the OC Dana Point Harbor has refused our public information request but we got their (OC DPH) documents from the City of Dana Point who complied with our request.
