No more twisting of the adopted zoning code regulations

Did you know that a commercial property owner in Del Mar has filed a $14,762,000-plus attorney and legal costs lawsuit against the City of Del Mar?  You won’t believe what it is all about!

After the City adopted an overwhelming volume of Zoning Code regulations for developers and residents to abide by, this commercial property owner has produced a very extensive list of commercial property developments that have been approved, and allowed to proceed, over the years in alleged violation of adopted zoning code regulations. Looking at the list, it would appear the property owner has a legitimate case against the city, but it will be up to the court.

We are beginning a New Year with two new Council members who have not been involved with any of these alleged violations.  Let’s hope that henceforth the City Council, with accurate advice from the City Attorney, will make sure future developments will only be approved per the adopted regulations of the city and state, as interpreted by the ordinary and customary use of the English language.

Please, no more twisting of the rules and language, which may lead to expensive lawsuits.
