Del Mar council scraps educational mailer, directs staff to send notices

The Del Mar City Council on Sept. 24 put the breaks on a full-color, city-sponsored mailer containing the Village Specific Plan’s (VSP) executive summary, but opted instead to mail out two notices informing residents of upcoming question-and-answer sessions to take place on Oct. 1 and Oct. 15, from 6-7:30 p.m. in the Del Mar City Hall Annex.

Del Mar supports investigation of San Onofre nuclear plant

After hearing a detailed explanation from a San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station official about the tubing failure and radiation release that took place in January, as well as nearly a dozen heartfelt pleas from citizens to take a stand on the issue, the Del Mar City Council on Sept. 24 passed a resolution calling for a public Nuclear Regulatory Commission hearing to review the station’s license.

Southern California Edison, which operates the station, needs to go the extra mile to re-establish public confidence, said Councilman Terry Sinnott.

“There is a public confidence issue,” he said. “The public is worried.”

The resolution was adopted with some amendments, however, narrowing the scope of the issue in an effort to make it more effective in obtaining its goal — a transparent investigation.

Del Mar appoints new planning commissioners

The Del Mar City Council voted unanimously on Sept. 24 to bring attorney Sam Blick and his decades of civic government experience to the Planning Commission.  Mark Corcoran, who vied for a spot on the commission last year, won three votes from the council, earning him a seat as well.

Blick, a Del Mar resident since 2008, is an attorney and founding partner of his Rancho Santa Fe firm that specializes in land use, real estate development, community interest developments, and golf course development. Blick started early in civic involvement when, at the age of 23, he became the assistant city attorney of Chula Vista (which advised that community’s planning commission).

Corcoran, who has a master’s degree in city planning, works as a planning consultant for the City of San Diego, and is responsible for writing staff reports like those that get considered by city councils. He also served in the U.S. Navy.
