Del Mar residents encouraged to help shape the future of the Shores Park

The City of Del Mar is inviting residents to apply to be a member of the new Shores Park Master Plan Committee. The purpose of the committee is to provide oversight on the master planning process and provide community input for future development of the Shores Park.

The City currently owns the 5.3-acre parcel on 215/225 Ninth Street. In 2007, the City Council adopted a resolution that restricted the site to be used as open space and recreation and for the continued operation of the Winston School.

The City is now embarking on a project to develop a master plan for the site.

The intent of the Park Master Plan process is to provide a comprehensive long-range vision intended to guide the Park’s development and a “blueprint” to set the public policies regarding the future facilities, programs and management actions.

To help guide this process, on Feb. 3, the City Council established the Shores Park Master Plan Committee. The Committee, consisting of seven members, will oversee the Master Plan process to make sure that the process is open, inclusive, and help to develop consensus amongst the many stakeholders that are interested in the future of the Shores Park.

The Committee will also assist the community in prioritizing the many competing uses of the Shores Park, discuss and provide advice to the City Council on the challenges facing the Master Plan process, and review and provide input to the City Council on the Master Plan process.

“This is an exciting opportunity for the public to be directly involved in helping to shape the future of the Shores Park,” said Mayor Lee Haydu. “Developing a long-term vision for the park will ensure it remains a place for all residents and visitors to enjoy opportunities for recreation and entertainment.”

It is anticipated that the Shores Park Master Plan Committee will meet approximately monthly for the duration of the Park Master Plan process. If residents are interested in applying for this Committee, please visit the City’s website at and click on “Volunteer Opportunities,” to complete a Citizen Interest Form. The application deadline is Friday, Feb. 28, 2014.
