Local News in Brief : Dana Point : Council Draws Overflow Crowd on Maiden Meet
The City Council conducted is first regular meeting Tuesday night, drawing an overflow crowd of more than 100 residents as subjects both routine and controversial were dealt with on a relatively short agenda.
During the first order of business, Rep. Ron Packard (R-Carlsbad) presented the council with a letter of congratulations from President Reagan and a U.S. flag that Packard said he arranged to have flown over the U.S. Capitol building in commemoration of Dana Point’s cityhood on Jan. 1.
After that, however, the council heard from a number of speakers who brought up both more mundane and more controversial concerns. Resident John Bates, for example, suggested that the council do something about what he called the dangerous traffic conditions on Selva Road.
And residents of a Dana Point mobile home park crowded into the council chambers--which for the time being are in the Capistrano Bay Park and Recreation District community center--to voice complaints over an ongoing rent dispute with their landlord.
