Dana West Marina Improvements

Dear Fellow Boaters,

We have just receive some good news regarding security and parking lot improvements for the cove-side of the Dana West Marina.

Dana West Marina is in the process of installing an electronic access system for all Dana West Marina cove side parking lots, restrooms, and laundry rooms. Installation of the system has begun, and it is anticipated that the entire installation will be completed by February 14, 2012. There will be a short period where the system will be tested and we plan to be fully operational by March 1, 2012.

In addition to the entrance gate there will be a security camera installed at the gate entrance (cove-side) for use by Dana West Marina & OC Dana Point Harbor to gain access into the parking lot for guests and clients. 

After speak with Kelly Rinderknecht, General Manager, Dana West Marina and Paul Lawrence, OC DPH for the above information, the island-side parking lots, restrooms and laundry facilities of the West Basin are scheduled for fiscal-year 2012; tentatively starting installations around September 2012.
