Dana Point Municipal Code Chapter 4.30 (entitled "Eminent Domain") prohibits the City and any "City Affiliated Agency" from exercising the power of eminent domain to acquire property from any private owner, without the owner's consent, where the purpose of such eminent domain acquisition at the time of the acquisition is the intended conveyance of the property to any other private party, for the conduct of any commercial for-profit activity. As used in Chapter 4.30, a "City Affiliated Agency" means the City of Dana Point and/or any other entity possessing the power of eminent domain, the governing board of which is composed of or is solely appointed by the members of the City Council of the City of Dana Point.

If this measure is adopted, then Chapter 4.30 of the Dana Point Municipal Code would be reenacted by the voters. This measure does not alter the substantive provisions of Chapter 4.30. This measure states that it may be amended or repealed only by a vote of the people; as a result, if this measure is adopted then the City Council would be required to obtain voter approval to amend or repeal Chapter 4.30. If this measure is not adopted, the City Council would not be required to obtain voter approval to amend or repeal Chapter 4.30.
