Plan for Open Space Bond Measure Fails

A $15-million open-space bond issue will not be put before voters on November ballot.

Councilman Harold R. Kaufman's proposal would have allowed the city to buy open space anywhere it became available within the city, although he and other residents were focused on possibly buying a cluster of houses and condominiums on the Dana Point Headlands.

The city, he said, would eventually "be able to tear them down and return the sites to natural open space."

Fellow council members declined to second Kaufman's motion Tuesday night.
