DEPARTMENT OF COMMUNITY PLANNING AND BUILDING

STAFF REPORT

TO: MAYOR BURNETT AND MEMBERS OF THE CITY COUNCIL

FROM: SEAN CONROY, PLNG & BLDG SERVICES MANAGER

DATE: 5 JUNE 2012

SUBJECT: RECEIVE AN UPDATE ON THE DEL MAR MASTER PLAN

BACKGROUND & DESCRIPTION
In accordance with General Plan Goal 4-2 the City adopted the Del Mar Master Plan
(DMMP) in 2009. The DMMP addresses issues related to parking, circulation, public
access, aesthetics and environmental resources of the parking area and adjacent dunes
and was reviewed by the Planning Commission, City Council and Coastal Commission.
On 11 November 2012 the City was awarded a $250,000 grant from the Coastal
Conservancy to implement elements of the DMMP.

Part of the DMMP encouraged the construction of a pedestrian pathway along San
Antonio Avenue from Ocean Avenue to Fourth Avenue and an ADA accessible
boardwalk and viewing platform west of the Del Mar parking area. The Planning
Commission has issued Design Review and Coastal Development permits for these
projects. The purpose of this item on the agenda is to present the plans to the City
Council to ensure it concurs with the Planning Commission approvals.

The plans include the following:

San Antonio Pathway
• A decomposed granite pathway on the west side of San Antonio Avenue between
Ocean Avenue and 4th Avenue.
• A new planter at the intersection of San Antonio and 4th.
• The reduction in size of the existing center island planter at the intersection of San
Antonio and 4th.

A rock-faced curb is proposed for the portion of the path between 4th Avenue and the
southern driveways at the Sand and Sea development. The pathway will be placed above
the street grade and appear similar to the Scenic Blufftop Pathway.

A retaining wall between 0’ and 3’ in height for a short section just south of the
driveways at the Sand and Sea development. A $16,000 donation was given to the City
to ensure that this wall be faced with Carmel stone.

Boardwalk/Viewing Area
• A wood boardwalk that would lead from the existing sidewalk on the north side of
the Del Mar parking area to a viewing platform on the bluff top.
• The viewing platform is approximately 10’ x 15’ that would offer ADA access and
views of the coast.
• The platform will be made of wood with cable rails, and will also include a bench.

Minor changes could still be incorporated into the plans if the Council deems appropriate.
Significant changes to the plans, however, may require the Planning Commission to
amend its approvals.
