Del Mar Fairgrounds board postpones shared governance meeting

By Joe Tash

A special meeting to discuss shared governance of the Del Mar Fairgrounds originally planned for June 17 will be pushed back until early fall.

The 22nd District Agricultural Association, which runs the state-owned fairgrounds, has been in talks with the county of San Diego on a proposed model of shared governance to increase local control of the facility.

Adam Day, president of the 22nd DAA board, had announced the June 17 special meeting at the board’s regular meeting on June 4.

However, due to scheduling issues, including the ongoing San Diego County Fair and upcoming Del Mar race meet, consideration of an agreement for shared governance between the county and the 22nd DAA will be pushed back for a few months, Day said.

The 22nd DAA is currently working with the county and state officials to finalize the partnership agreement, said Day.  All three entities have endorsed the concept.

Day said he is also meeting with Del Mar and Solana Beach officials, who are requesting representation on any new board that is formed to run the fairgrounds under the partnership agreement.
