A CPP (Citizen Participation Program) meeting was held recently on the proposed condo-hotel project on the gas station site at 10th and CDM. Planners are now working on integrating citizen feedback into their design. The timeline calls for DRB and Planning Commission review before Council consideration this summer. The expectation is for the proposal to be on the November ballot for voter decision per Measure B.

Gun Show Allegations
The “Never Again” gun show opponents demonstrated at the May gun show at the fairgrounds. Spokesperson Ira Sharp accused the Fair Board of hiring “persons convicted of violating federal gun laws to run a gun show.” In response, Board President Steve Shewmaker stated “we’ve started an investigation with the Department of Justice .” According to the gun show contract approved by the Board the licensee must abide by all firearms and weapons laws.

Uptick in Break-Ins
Recently, there has been an uptick in car break-ins, both in Del Mar and adjacent neighborhoods of the City of San Diego. Residents are asked to please remember to leave their car doors locked, take keys, and to not leave any valuable items in their cars. Most vehicle break-ins occur overnight.

The Sheriff’s Department is collaborating with the San Diego Police Department and has had extra deputy patrols in Del Mar. They believe they may have caught the suspect, however, these are important reminders none-theless. Residents are asked to report suspicious activity right away by either calling the Sheriff’s Department non-emergency line (858) 565-5200 or calling 911.
