Reintroducing the Boater Liaison Program
Happy New Year! We hope you enjoyed the holidays and are well-rested for what's going to be a busy year in Dana Point Harbor. This coming March the three private developers under consideration for undertaking our Revitalization Plan and assuming operations of our harbor for the next 50 years will submit their proposals to the County of Orange. By the fall, the County will select their new partner... and our new landlord. In addition to this huge milestone in the future of our harbor, there's always so much happening in and around our harbor. You must have questions. We do.
A few years ago we introduced the Boater Liaison Program, a partnership between the Dana Point Boaters Association and harbor leadership that offers boaters and other members of our Dana Point Harbor community a forum to ask questions, express their views, share ideas and make suggestions to the various agencies that manage our harbor and oversee its operations.  Your DPBA leadership collects your submissions and raises your questions, ideas, concerns and suggestions to the appropriate harbor agency for their consideration and response..
After hibernating the Boater Liaison Program for a few months as our harbor leadership was transformed, we are reinstating this popular program. Do you have a question for OC Parks, who now manages day-to-day operations of our harbor? Have a suggestion for the Harbor Patrol? Want information from the County on what Harbor Revitalization means to you? Would you like an interpretation of slip rules from the marina operators? Let us know and we will see that your submission is addressed by the appropriate agency and provide you with their response.
Submit your issue by visiting our Boater Liaison page  here . Find more details on how this program works   here . To review previous submissions and responses, go   here . The deadline for the next round of submissions is January 31st.
We wish to thank OC Parks, Dana Point Harbor Patrol, Dana Point Marina Company, Dana West Marina, Vintage Marina Partners, Supervisor Lisa Bartlett's office and other harbor leaders for their participation in this program.
For the Board of Directors,
James Lenthall,
The Dana Point Boaters Association

The Dana Point Boaters Association advocates the preservation, enhancement, and expansion of affordable recreational boating resources.  We work to improve the family friendly atmosphere and breadth of water-oriented actives we all enjoy in the harbor.  We serve as the watchdog by ethically protecting the rights of all boaters and representing them when collective action is most effective.  We actively gather information and communicate our views to educate boaters, external interests, and public officials.  We build and maintain constructive, working relationships to achieve common goals with other harbor stakeholders.  We will pass on our harbor to the next generation of recreational boaters in better condition than it is today.
