Solana Beach Mayor Lesa Heebner named to 22nd District Agricultural Association Community Relations Committee

Solana Beach Mayor Lesa Heebner will be replacing councilman Tom Campbell on the 22nd District Agricultural Association Community Relations Committee, a standing committee which recently took on the added task of meeting with Del Mar representatives to discuss Del Mar’s intent to purchase the fairgrounds and racetrack from the state for $120 million.

Councilman Campbell said he had to step down from serving on that committee due to time constraints, as he works as a CPA (Certified Public Accountant) and is preparing for his busy time of year. The council unanimously voted to replace Campbell with Heebner during a special session Dec. 16.

Mayor Heebner and Solana Beach councilman Dave Roberts will continue talks with Del Mar City Councilmen Mark Filanc and Carl Hilliard via the committee, which meets as needed.

Solana Beach council members have said they do not support Del Mar solely owning the fairgrounds and racetrack. Instead, the Solana Beach council is proposing that the property be under regional ownership and local control, which would include all the communities and entities impacted by activities on the property.
