Staff Tackles Specifics
Dave Druker | 10th Street


The City of Del Mar is on the road to create a Specific Plan for Downtown along Camino Del Mar from 9th Street to 15th Street. The staff is developing different alternatives that will come to the community for public comment beginning in October. A series of Community Conversations/Workshops will be held to garner input. At these meetings alternatives will be discussed as to how many travel lanes along Camino Del Mar, how tall development should be, etc. The intent is to have a Specific Plan on the November 2012 ballot.

In tandem an EIR will be developed so that this EIR can incorporate mitigations into the plan and develop recommendations that work. An EIR consultant is being chosen along with a draft schedule.

A fiscal analysis of the impact to property and sales tax revenue will also be completed using a number of alternatives based upon proposed zoning designations.
An analysis of sales tax data is being completed along with an analysis assessing public service costs and revenues associated with the development.

Diagrams are being prepared to illustrate current allowable uses under the code as it exists. During the process these will be updated based upon community input.
The council has also asked that there be points of measurement to determine the success of the plan. There will be no specific analysis to determine if the plan will be economically viable for any private development to be completed.
