The newly-minted Del Mar Community Building, located at 225 9th Street, was slated for its grand opening on August 28, giving community members an opportunity to tour the facility, learn about the spaces available for community use, and enjoyed a wine and cheese gathering with other residents.

The Community Building includes offices for DMF and DMCC, along with a large computer lab for DMCC’s brain fitness and computer training programs. Three community organizations (DMF, DMCC and the DMVA History Committee) will have storage space on site, allowing a collective savings of over $500 each month in off- site storage unit fees. The property also includes a parking lot, a rare amenity in Del Mar.

Del Mar community groups will have access to a conference room seating 14, a kitchen with a work space for 8, and reception room, all of which will be available by advance reservation. These rooms will be a welcome addition to the community meeting spaces currently available in the City Hall Annex and the Library.
The Foundation approached the City of Del Mar last year with a proposal to use the building, formerly the administrative offices of the Del Mar Union School District, as a community building. On May 1, the Foundation and the City inked an Interim Use Agreement approving this use for an initial period of two years, while the long-term use of the property is being determined by a master plan process for the entire Shores property.
