Doheny Village Plan

Doheny Village

The City of Dana Point is in the midst of a comprehensive planning effort for the Doheny Village area.  Opticos Design, Inc. was recently hired to further refine the vision plan developed by ROMA Design Group in 2013.  Working with the community, Opticos will refine the vision document as well as prepare a new zoning code which will serve as the regulatory framework for the vision.  The end result will be a form-based code that embraces the unique and rich "maker" culture that is the historical foundation of Doheny Village that still exists today while promoting a walkable village with a mix of uses to serve area residents and visitors.

The links below provide information about the early vision document prepared by ROMA, as well as reports and documents prepared by Opticos, and all City Council agenda items beginning in June 2015 until adoption of the new zoning code.

Noteworthy News


If you are a resident of Dana Point and would like to participate on the Form Based Code Committee for Doheny Village, please complete and submit the application by March 31, 2016.

The City, with the help of Opticos Design, Inc., is writing a new zoning code for Doheny Village based on the recently endorsed Illustrative Plan (land use plan) resulting from a community design charrette last September.  The new Form Based Code is a different approach to conventional zoning, so input from stakeholders is key to insure successful implementation of this long range plan.
