Help Wanted!!!
Anthony Corso | Stratford Court


As you know Del Mar encourages widespread citizen participation in its governance and decision making. Previous issues of the Sandpiper document an outstanding record of local residents volunteering and successfully serving on city boards, committees and commissions.

Many residents generously give of their time and resources to contribute to the development and evolution of an environmentally harmonious, distinctive and “outstanding city.”

The commitment to citizen participation and volunteerism continues to this day as elected officials and departmental administrators solicit and recruit volunteers. However, the process has proven more difficult for a variety of reasons- many due to the national economy and an influx of new residents unfamiliar with city issues and volunteerism.

Yet resident involvement remains crucial to informed decision making and the advancement of publically supported policies and programs.

These are some of the major ongoing commissions, boards and committees which rely upon citizen participation and volunteers followed by a list of vacancies that exist for volunteer service. Additional volunteer opportunities are listed on the City’s website:
