Does that sound like anything in the General Plan?

Last week it was reported that the Del Mar City Council adopted the proposed project description of the Del Mar Village Specific Plan, which indicated to increase the development potential within the study area (increase square footage from approximately 280,000 to approximately 600,000). That is part of the plan on which the EIR is to be based. Does that sound like anything in the General Plan?

Let’s see, that means more than double the existing size of buildings already in downtown! And assuming all of the additional space is retail/services (no restaurants/bar) that 320,000 additional space, at the current required ratio of 1 parking space/300 sq. feet, means an additional 1,067 parking spaces. Think about that!

But, what if 1/3 of that additional space is food/drink service at 1/90 spaces, then the required additional parking spaces for that total additional development would amount to 1,896! Think about that!

That is a big parking structure — and served by a two-lane street with roundabouts!

Does that sound like anything in the General Plan?
