Smokers won a minor victory this week when the City Council agreed to allow smoking throughout restaurant bars and lounges and on at least half of outdoor restaurant patios. The council voted 3 to 1 to amend the city's stringent no-smoking ordinance for public places that was to go into effect July 1. Under that law, 75% of all restaurant areas would have been off limits to smoking, with a total ban on restaurant smoking due to take effect July 1, 1994.

"Hurray," said McGeary, longtime owner of the Dana Point Cafe/Wine Bar and a leader of a downtown merchants group. "We've come a long way. The palm tree war is over.

Alex McGeary felt like celebrating. For years, McGeary has fought to make Dana Point look more like the California coastal city it is instead of the Cape Cod village its laws have required. As the first of 440 spindly palm trees began lining Street of the Golden Lantern this fall, he saw it as a sign that the winds of change are blowing in his direction. "Hurray," said McGeary, longtime owner of the Old Dana Point Cafe and Wine Bar and a leader of a downtown merchants group.

Just four days after the state's highest court outlawed a Santa Ana ordinance imposing household occupancy limits lower than the state's, an Orange County Superior Court judge declared Tuesday that a similar Dana Point law was illegal. The ruling by Orange County Superior Judge C. Robert Jameson was a further setback to city lawmakers attempting to limit the number of people who can inhabit a house or apartment, as a way to combat overcrowding.

The city law will allow registered RV owners to park in front of their homes for up to 72 hours. The ordinance also gives police the discretion to let visitors park RVs on a residential street for 72 hours. The council and traffic commission had considered several options, including banning RV parking during the early morning hours.

A Superior Court judge Tuesday denied a Dana Point man's attempt to block enforcement of the city's new housing overcrowding law.
