HEARD IT THROUGH THE GRAPEVINE
Dana Point Harbor Revitalization  Update
 
As a nearly 20-year plan to revitalize Dana Point Harbor finally gets underway, county and local leaders envision a thriving recreational, boating and retail center that will make the city a  "five-star" destination .  

The project- estimated to cost $150 million to $200 million- is expected to turn the harbor into a more prominent Orange County destination.

"Keeping the harbor filled with independent and unique shops is vital to Dana Point," said Heather Johnston, executive director of the Dana Point Chamber of Commerce. *
