Del Mar moves forward with city hall survey

By Kristina Houck

Community members can soon share their thoughts on a new city hall for Del Mar in an online survey.

The council on Jan. 6 directed staff to issue a survey about replacing the city’s current facilities at 1050 Camino Del Mar.

About 40 residents weighed in on what amenities a new civic center should offer, where offices should be located and how the project should be financed during a community workshop on Dec. 2.

The council on Dec. 9 discussed issuing a survey so all members of the public could have an opportunity to voice their opinions. At that time, city staff presented a six-page survey draft that posed similar questions to those that were asked during the workshop. Council members requested changes to the survey’s length and language.

Staff returned to the council with a simplified version of the survey during the Jan. 6 meeting. At a little more than four pages, the survey allows respondents to provide feedback on the workshop outcomes.

“The survey is better,” Councilman Don Mosier said. “It looks good to me.”

During one of his last conversations with Lou Terrell, Councilman Terry Sinnott noted the former Del Mar mayor said the city could accomplish the project. Terrell died Jan. 3 when he was struck and killed by a train near Powerhouse Park.

“That’s the kind of positive guy he was,” Sinnott said. “He really wanted us to move forward with it, so let’s move forward.”

The city will distribute postcards to about 6,000 residents, property owners and business owners, inviting them to participate online. The city will also send email blasts to its distribution list to further encourage participation.

The survey will be posted on the city’s website at www.delmar.ca.us/Pages/CivicCenterPlanning.aspx. Hard copies will be available upon request for those without Internet access.

The postcard notices and online survey is expected to cost about $4,000, according to the staff report. Staff intends to present the council with the survey outcomes at the Feb. 18 meeting.
