Coming soon: Welcome to Del Mar?

More than 125 people, or 54 families, are proposed to live on the southeast corner of Jimmy Durante Boulevard and San Dieguito Road. This project denounces those values, which represent our scenic beach town and conformity to environmental standards.

1. Valuable sensitive land site

Del Mar exemplifies great location and quality of life while being protective of our environment. All this has been supported and enforced through our zoning laws, conforming residential uses to lower densities and tempered for environmental concerns. Our city’s appeal/allure is internationally renown and shall always serve us well, as a most special place to visit and live. This corner lot is our “Welcome to Del Mar.”

2. Disregarded values will damage Del Mar

The city of Del Mar plans to change zoning to high-density residential, eliminate existing building code restrictions for height limitations, rear set backs, number of housing units per acre, view obstructions, traffic congestion, etc. This will cause irrevocable damage to residents’ lives, home values, neighborhoods, community and environment. This oversized and out-of-character apartment development for 54 families, shall cause more than 125 people to live on this corner. This creates a more dense intensive use, especially in the evenings, versus commercial, which winds down and turns off.

All those interested, please attend a public meeting [on this issue] from 5-7 p.m. on Nov. 7 at the Parish Hall in St. Peter’s Episcopal Church.

For more information, contact the Del Mar Hillside Community Association at 858-663-4801 or delmarhillside@yahoo.com.

This wasn’t recent, fortunately, but it comprise […]
