Greetings!  ,




In our latest Boaters Blast on November 20, 2011 we had mistakenly  posted an upcoming Scoping Meeting date within the paragraph heading, "Next Steps?"


We stated there is an SEIR Scoping Meeting scheduled on December 8th, Thursday, from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM.  Oops! Unfortunately during our late hour writing we mistakenly posted this time and date.  At present there is not a Scoping Meeting scheduled, but you can be sure we will notify you as soon as a Meeting date is scheduled for the SEIR.


We have been in contact with OC Dana Point Harbor regarding the Next Steps?  The Department will be reviewing all written comments and responses to the Draft SEIR over the next month or two.  They will then compile and provide a written response to the written comments responding to the adequacy and appropriateness of the Draft SEIR.


Again, our apologies! 

For the Board of Directors and Advisors,

Rodger Beard, President     

The Dana Point Boaters Association
