An open house was held Aug. 28 to unveil the newly christened Del Mar Community Building, 225 9th Street, formerly the Del Mar Union School District administrative offices.  Guests toured the facility and learned about activities already scheduled in the building. They also viewed meeting spaces available for community meeting use.

The Del Mar Community Building includes offices for the Del Mar Foundation (DMF) and the Del Mar Community Connections (DMCC), along with a large computer lab for DMCC’s brain fitness and computer training programs. The building includes a conference room seating 14, a kitchen with a work space for eight, and a reception room.  The facilities augment current community meeting space at the Del Mar Library and City Hall Annex.

Three community organizations (DMF, DMCC and the DMVA History Committee) have storage space on site, allowing a collective savings of over $500 in monthly off-site storage unit fees. The property also includes a parking lot, a rare amenity in Del Mar.

Both DMCC and the Del Mar Foundation pooled funds to remodel the space, which now includes an ADA-compliant restroom.  Numerous volunteers and volunteer groups, as well as assistance from City of Del Mar staff, came together to help give the building a facelift.

While a long-term master plan is being developed for the entire Shores property, the Del Mar Foundation and the City of Del Mar entered into a two-year Interim Use Agreement.
