CIVIC CENTER CONVERSATIONS To The Del Mar City Council:
I believe the civic center process has been effective so far. There is a widely-held expectation that the entire community will get a chance to weigh in and now is the time if you want to protect the integrity of the process.
My suggestion is that you put out a mail ballot with three options:
1. Municipal uses, parking, plaza, financing strategy
3. Municipal uses, parking, plaza, residential uses, financing strategy
A pamphlet with graphics explaining each option should be included.
With this vote you will have the backing of the entire community and can proceed with the design phase with confidence and dispatch. Failure to do so now will undermine much of the good work that has been done.
Thanks for your consideration.
