The City is accepting public comment on a proposed change that would allow additional residential units in two areas: Professional Commercial (PC) zone on Camino del Mar between 8th and 9th and the the North Commercial (NC) zone at the corners of Jimmy Durante Blvd. and San Dieguito Drive. The draft is available for review at City Hall, at the Del Mar Library and is on the City’s website at: Delmar.ca.us/751/NCPC-Zoning-Amendment. Comments may be submitted through January 3, 2020 via mail to the Planning Department or via email to Shaun McMahon at smcmahon@delmar.ca.us/. There will also be a December 2 City Council and December 3 Planning Commission hearing on the proposed amendment.

The proposed change would allow up to 20 dwelling units, mixed-use commercial and residential or all commercial where only one residential unit per parcel is currently allowed. There would be no changes in the allowed floor area, lot coverage and heights. The amendment provides more opportunities for much needed additional housing in Del Mar plus the desired possibility of residences within walking distance of work and other neighborhood amenities. The proposed change is one of the ways Del Mar hopes to meet its quota of additional housing, including affordable housing, as required by the State and approved by Council as part of our 2013-2021 Housing Element.

The Draft also includes the evaluation of residential uses in the Public Facilities zones for possible consideration in the future. No specific development is proposed. In reviewing the Draft, respondents are being asked to focus on the sufficiency of the Draft in identifying environmental impacts of the proposed changes and mitigating for those impacts.
