VSP flawed, reasonable parking standards needed

George Conkwright
1201 Camino del Mar

For 45 years Del Mar has had impossible parking standards. This led to the issuance of back door permits to under parked properties, which resulted in substandard development and a parking shortage for entire the commercial district. Numerous meetings were held to promote the Village Specific Plan, and the residents answered:

(a) We don’t want a 500-page monster document to control future development.

(b) We don’t want more buildings; we want re-development of the dilapidated buildings.

(c) We want the City to correct the parking shortage by building a City-owned parking structure.

The Village Specific Plan is a disincentive to redevelopment since it requires a commercial property owner to convert his private parking to public parking in return for reasonable parking standards. The VSP is flawed in many additional ways and will never re-vitalize the downtown. Re-development of Del Mar cannot occur until the City has established reasonable parking standards.
