Del Mar: Community review next phase of village revitalization

Marlena Medford
Staff Writer

Over the past couple of months, the city hosted a series of community conversations to gain feedback on village revitalization. Attendance to those public meetings ranged from 11 to 35 people, with a total of 125 residents participating. Several topics were discussed throughout the series, including: creating a pedestrian-oriented village, creating a cooperative parking program, additional street level uses at Camino del Mar, and encouraging mixed-use residential development downtown.

The next phase of this project is “community review,” which will gather residents’ reaction to Village Revitalization Plan proposals and incentives, as well as address the alternatives that have come from the first round of community conversations.

This phase will occur during the preparation of the draft Village Revitalization Plan and Environmental Impact Report (EIR) in fall 2011.

The third phase, “community education,” will provide information to residents about the Village Revitalization Plan prior to the anticipated public vote. This third phase will occur during summer and fall 2012.
