PRESS RELEASE
Dana Point, Ca. Sept. 17, 2016

A group of concerned Dana Point residents announced today that they are circulating Referendum petitions for the purpose of rescinding the Short Term Rental Ordinances passed by the Dana Point City Council on September 6, 2016. “The short term rental ordinance passed by the City Council on a split 3‐2 vote permits unlimited short term rentals in residential neighborhoods” said Buck Hill, Dana Point resident who is part of the referendum effort. “Even more appalling, the ordinance gives away to the California Coastal Commission the City’s right to modify, limit or prohibit short term rentals said Mr. Hill. He noted that Councilmen Rich Viczorek and Joe Muller voted against the Ordinance for that very reason. “We have repeatedly asked the three City Council members who voted for this Ordinance to explain why they have given away this power to the California Coastal Commission. None has given us an answer.”

Hill observed that the ordinance will risk turning residential neighborhoods into tourist districts with large numbers of short term hotels, and stated that outside investors have already started to invade Dana Point. “You won’t have neighbors, you will have constantly changing strangers next door.”

The Referendum process requires signatures of ten percent of the registered voters in Dana Point to force the City Council to either rescind the Ordinance or call for an election. Dana Point voters who would like to support the Referendum should go to www.facebook.com/DanaPointResidents
