Del Mar City Council establishes Shores Park Master Plan Committee
By Kristina Houck
To move forward with a plan for Del Mar Shores Park, the City Council on Feb. 3 established a Shores Park Master Plan Committee.
While a consultant prepares the plan, the committee will provide oversight on the process and community input.
“I think it’s very important that this be done in a very thorough way so the community has a chance to prioritize its desires,” Councilman Terry Sinnott said. “It’s a very important task.”
The council voted in August 2007 to purchase the $8.5 million property from the school district, with the intent to preserve current open space and recreational uses, continue operation of The Winston School, and initiate a master plan process. The long-range plan will guide the development of the 5.3-acre park along Camino del Mar.
After the city advertises for volunteers and receives applications, the council will appoint up to seven members to represent Del Mar’s diverse community interests for the Shores Park Master Plan. Sinnott and Councilwoman Sherryl Parks will serve as council liaisons to the committee.
