Del Mar supports cease-and-desist for fairgrounds, asks for quarterly updates

By Claire Harlin

The Del Mar City Council on March 5 approved a letter to the California Coastal Commission (CCC) supporting its recent 28-page cease-and-desist and restoration orders handed down the Del Mar Fairgrounds board.

The deal, considered by the commission at its March 8 meeting in Chula Vista, would require the fair to make $5 million in improvements.

In addition to support of the orders, Del Mar officials requested that the commission provide quarterly reports on the status of various implementation measures. They also revised the letter to ask the commission to hold fair-related discussions at a Southern California venue, so locals do not have to use air travel to attend.
In the two orders, there are a number of time frames specified by which the fairgrounds board is required to submit various reports, but there was not a requirement to release those updates in the form of a report to the public, city staff said. This proposed revision would seek to modify that.
