Fee Waiver Approved by SLO Board of Supervisors

On Tuesday, November 14, DANA’s request for a fee waiver was heard by the San Luis Obispo County Board of Supervisors. The request was for a waiver of new and future building permit processing fees in the amount of $59,200 associated with a future metal barn, gazebo, shade structure and modular home replacement, as well as required water offset fees.

The San Luis Obispo County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously in favor of the waiver. We at the DANA Adobe Cultural Center are extremely grateful for their support and approval. We thank Supervisor John Peschong, Supervisor Bruce Gibson, Supervisor Adam Hill, Supervisor Lynn Compton, and Supervisor Debbie Arnold. The project will benefit the community and public at large.

Monthly Program Day – November

Join us on Sunday, November 12th from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM for our Monthly Program Day!

This month, visitors will get the opportunity to learn about the significance of branding during the early California Rancho era. Learn what the brands were used for and how to read them. Design your own brand and participate in a round-up. The Branding station is one of our many fun Cultural Programs that provides a hands-on learning immersion into what life was like during the California Rancho Era.

During this event, the Dana House will also be holding docent-led tours for anyone who might be interested in learning the rich history it has to offer.

Spend a fun, free, Sunday afternoon with us at the Dana Adobe in Nipomo!
