Del Mar seeks input on downtown revitalization

Del Mar City Council and city staff are hosting a series of discussions over the next couple of months in hopes of getting community input on downtown revitalization efforts.

During these community conversations residents will have an opportunity to talk about ways to best create a more pedestrian friendly and economically viable downtown. City council liaisons Mayor Don Mosier and Councilwoman Lee Haydu will participate in these community conversations, which will take place in various parts of town and are scheduled as follows:

• Thursday, April 28, 5 to 7 p.m. — Oceanfront and mid-beach area
• Tuesday, May 3, 7 to 9 p.m. — South hills and south bluff area
• Sunday, May 15, 3 to 5 p.m. — Hills south of 15th Street
• Thursday, May 26, 7 to 9 p.m. — 15th Street and Crest area
• Sunday, June 5, 3 to 5 p.m. — City Hall Annex

Because most of these community conversations are being hosted inside private homes, RSVP is requested by emailing or calling 858-755-9313, extension 160. All RSVPs should include a name, address, email, number of people attending and preferred location. City staff will then email the exact location once an RSVP is received. Mosier and Haydu will brief council on feedback from these community conversations as they happen, and the June 5 event will be a noticed public meeting so all council members can participate. Another community conversation will be added to this schedule, although at presstime the date was not confirmed yet.

City staff will use feedback from these events to define and prioritize issues related to downtown revitalization, including proposed changes to the downtown parking ordinance, as they goes hand-in-hand with that effort. In the fall, city staff will begin working on a draft of the Village Revitalization Plan and Environmental Impact Report (EIR), and host another round of community input. Throughout the summer and fall of 2012, city staff will conduct an educational outreach program and there will be another round of community input. If the city council adopts a downtown revitalization plan, it will then go to the public for a vote. If the city council adopts any changes to the parking ordinance in downtown, it will then go before the California Coastal Commission.
