This document was just forwarded to us. It gives a timeline and budget costs of what has be going on behind the scenes with LSA, South Shores Church, and the City of Dana Point. It appears LSA is frustrated with design changes and new requirements put forth by the CDP.

Public Comment Nov. 4th, 2013 - Requesting DOCC to do a "REDO" of City's Notice of Preparation to the State Clearing House

The City of Dana Point seems to have major concerns about expansion as we do when it is across the street from City Hall. Dana Point High School is hoping to create a new theatre facility that is too large for the existing building site. Here are our concerns being stated by Kyle Butterwick as strong reasons not to build.

The meeting may provide useful ammunition for us.
Our thanks to Robert. Aug 15, 2010
