The City has prepared a historical Capital Improvement Program (CIP) summary of projects completed within the past 10 years.  The CIP Summary Document identifies the costs associated with project construction as well as the geographic location within City boundaries. Also, the summary separates outside funding and City funding.

Please reference the Citywide Project Location Map (linked below) which delineates the project areas into the following categories:

  • Capistrano Beach

  • Doheny/Harbor Area

  • Central Dana Point

  • Lantern Village

  • Lantern District

  • Monarch Beach

It is important to note the following:

  1. Projects are listed in the fiscal year they were completed, and some spanned multiple years.  

  2. Project work to maintain existing improvements (streets, storm drains, parks, facilities, etc.) was implemented based on need and the condition of City assets. Location of the work completed was not a factor in prioritizing repairs of existing improvements.

  3. The City Council has sole authority to decide what Projects are to be implemented/funded as part of the budget approval process, or at other times during the year.

If you have any questions about this information, please contact Matthew Sinacori, Public Works Director/City Engineer, at (949) 248-3554.

In accordance with the City Municipal Code Section 14.01.540(c), “Moratorium on Newly Paved Streets,” The City does not allow street cuts on streets that have been newly paved or resurfaced for a period of five (5) years unless an emergency to public health and safety exists. If a street with a moratorium is cut for any reason, the required asphalt repairs will be per the City Engineer. In most cases, the street will need to be entirely resurfaced with a minimum two (2) inch overlay from curb to curb in the area of work. In streets where a moratorium exists, the City Engineer may allow tunneling as an alternative to street cuts as long as there is enough space outside the paved surface to accommodate the tunneling operation. Tunneling will not be allowed in a street where a moratorium exists if the asphalt concrete pavement surface will be impacted. All damage caused during the work shall be repaired in kind within five (5) working days from the completion of the work.

To view a list of streets subject to the City’s Street Moratorium, refer to the City of Dana Point Streets Subject to Street Moratorium Map (PDF).

AB2766 Fund – Authorized by the State, fees are imposed on motor vehicles by the air pollution control districts. The fees are collected by the California Department of Motor Vehicles and distributed to local agencies by the South Coast Air Quality Management District to be used for the projects which improve air quality.

Coastal Area Road Improvements and Traffic Signals (CARITS) Fees – The CARITS Fee Program will finance the construction of roadway gaps, intersection improvements and traffic signals within the coastal area circulation system of the County.  The road improvements to be funded by this program are identified in the South County Road Improvement Action Plan.

General Fund – The capital budget is often supported by the transfer of unencumbered monies from the City’s General Fund,  which results from annual Operating revenue exceeding annual Operating costs. Accurate General Fund contribution forecasting is difficult and dependent on the City’s future year ability to match costs with revenues. General purpose funds may be used to finance any capital project.

Measure M Fund – Renewed Measure M (M2), the Revised Traffic Improvement and Growth Management Ordinance, provides for the collection of one-half (1/2) percent retail transaction and use tax to fund the Transportation Improvement Program, typically used for road repairs.

Park Development Fees – Section 7.36 of the Dana Point Municipal Code (DPMC) requires the dedication of land for park facilities or the payment of in-lieu fees as part of subdividing property.  The payment of in-lieu fees for park and recreation purposes instead of dedication of parkland is allowed if the location or topography of the subdivision is not conducive to the development of parks and recreation facilities at this location. Such in-lieu fees shall be equal to the value of the parkland that would have been dedicated.  Fees collected in this Program shall be used for park improvements citywide.

Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017 – Under Section 2030 of the Streets and Highways Code, Cities are allocated a share of the revenues derived from fuel taxes and vehicle registration taxes.  These revenue allocations must be used for public projects related to road maintenance and rehabilitation, safety projects, traffic control devices and complete street components.

State Highway User's (Gasoline) Taxes – Under Sections 2013, 2105, 2106, 2107, and 2107.5 of the California Streets and Highways Code, cities are allocated a share of the revenues derived from the state taxes on gasoline.  These revenues are restricted in their use to the construction, improvement and maintenance of public streets.

Other Grant Funds – Other Federal, State and County agencies may provide grant funding for specific programs that the City may obtain for specific projects such as, but not limited to, water quality, bicycle facilities improvements or natural resources programs.
