Decades ago Gregory Beckham recognized the train tracks on our fragile bluffs needed a bold solution. He put on his design hat and went to work on his own time. His far-sighted comprehensive 2020 plan was favorably received by city committee but died in the hands of regional officals. Now that 2020 is just around the corner there is finally developing a sense of urgency. Greg’s plan deserves a fresh look…

Since 1973 Beckham has been residing , creating and contributing in our community. Greg designs and creates quality sculptural jewlery in his studio on Stratford Ct that is inspired by the natural beauty of Del Mar. Greg raised his daughter Lindsay and son Nicholas here and his mother Olga enjoyed her retirement here in Del Mar for almost 30 years. He has also developed housing opportunities for middle income people in core Del Mar. Low key and affable, Greg contributes to our community in ways that reflect his artistic perspective. Recently he offered some suggested design alternatives for the Shores Park , some of which are reflected in the consultants proposals.
