Del Mar panel to present ideas on downtown planning standards

After more than 25 public meetings since May 2009, the Form Based Code Advisory Committee will present its findings for revitalizing downtown Del Mar at Monday’s City Council meeting.

The city and committee are encouraging public input on the form based code, which proposes to alter downtown zoning standards to be more conducive to creating a pedestrian-friendly shopping district. The committee will present its ideas to the council, which will provide direction before ultimately sending the project into the public outreach phase.

It has yet to be decided whether the form based code will be put to a public vote, which would realistically take place in June 2011.

Interim Planning Director Brian Mooney will return to the council on June 21 with a staff report that includes a proposed schedule, cost analysis and information on its environmental review process. He will have two versions of that schedule, one including a public vote, and the other not.

The council meeting begins at 6 p.m. Monday at the Del Mar TV Studio, located at 240 10th St.

The presentation will last one hour, half of which will include a Power Point slideshow and the other half for comments and discussion.
