Ag. board looking to mitigate effects of longer fair run

Del Mar city officials are exploring mitigation measures with the 22nd District Agricultural Association (DAA) board in response to the board’s recent decision to add two more days to the fair run.

The Del Mar City Council reported Nov. 14 on a recent meeting with the five newly-appointed DAA board members to discuss ways to mitigate impacts on traffic and businesses. The City of Solana Beach is also involved in the conversation.

The council reported that the Ag. board has agreed to push for a shuttle running back and forth between communities and the Del Mar Fairgrounds. Another mitigation measure Del Mar officials said the board agreed to involves improving public transportation routes to and from the fair, as well as promotions to get people to use mass transit rather than driving.

The council pointed out that there is a clear deadline in sight — the next fair season — so the process has already started and is moving quickly. Interim City Manager Mark Ochenduszko has a meeting with the fair officials this week in regard to the shuttle.

Deputy Mayor Carl Hilliard said the shuttle idea has been brought up in the past, but did not come to fruition because the City of Solana Beach pulled out of the project after finding another sponsor.

“Because of that it came to a stop,” said Hilliard.

Mayor Don Mosier said he senses that there is a “willingness to have funding come from the fairgrounds.”

  • What were the odds?
    I think we’d all agree that no one should have to worry about being run over by a motor vehicle in their own shower. I’m a world class worrier but until it almost happened, it never occurred to me to worry that a stolen car would crash through our front fence and stop inches from joining me in the master bath. This wasn’t recent, fortunately, but it comprise […]
