Del Mar City Council takes final action on pet-free area, charcoal ban, teen curfew

By Joe Tash

The Del Mar City Council took final action Monday, June 3, on new ordinances that will ban dogs and other pets from a tot lot and adjacent lawn at Powerhouse Park, and prohibit the use of charcoal grills at city beaches and parks.

The council voted unanimously to approve both new laws , which had been introduced and approved at previous council meetings.  Both new laws will take effect 30 days after the council meeting.

Council members said they took both actions to protect public safety.  The pet-free zone is intended to protect small children from potential contamination caused by pet waste in the tot lot and lawn area, while the charcoal grill ban is aimed at reducing the risk of injury from hot coals buried in the sand or dumped in trash cans.

Propane gas grills will still be allowed at city parks and beaches, and permits can be obtained to allow charcoal grills for special events.

The council also voted Monday to move the teen curfew up to 10 p.m. from 11 p.m., to conform with surrounding jurisdictions.
