Paseo Pearls, Piazzas, Platoons

On Thursday, Aug. 8, the One Paseo project presented a parade of project planners who patronized people of Carmel Valley with pretty pictures of pods, piazzas, pearls and platoons purporting to placate problems posed by their project plans. Pardon my p’s, but it was pathetic.

Enough gun show craziness

Bud Emerson

How much more gun violence do we need before the Fair Board steps up and takes a stand on the gun trafficking they sponsor with five gun shows a year?

Evolving Village Specific Plan

Some significant changes in the downtown revitalization draft were made by the Del Mar City Council just a few days ago.

Not too big, just right; Thresholds and triggers

Del Mar is on the verge of realizing the vision of our Community Plan for a pedestrian-oriented, viable, resident-serving downtown. However, our draft Village Specific Plan(VSP) is arousing fears that we might be growing too big, too fast.

Walkable Del Mar, finally

We Delmarians will soon have an opportunity to transform our downtown from a car-centric area to a pedestrian-centric environment. We will finally be able to put into place the last element of the vision built into our Community Plan in 1975, a walkable, resident-serving downtown.

Who develops Del Mar?

We do! Downtown Del Mar is called out in our Community Plan as a viable center with small resident-serving businesses in a pedestrian environment with one lane of traffic in each direction.
