|The Del Mar City Council is encouraging ideas from the public about the proposed
Civic Center — including open mike at every City Council meeting
from 6:30 to 7:00 pm. To help that process, the Sandpiper is soliciting ideas from the public
for the next several issues. A second is presented below. Publishing these ideas implies no endorsement by our editiors. Our goal is to broaden the community conversation. We hope to hear from more readers soon.

Mark your calendars for June 9! A critical date for public participation in a major community undertaking is June 9( see announcement on this page).
We are almost half way through a two year process to replace the current run-down city hall. Much work has been done to give the public important information to help make smart choices. So far work plans have covered site analysis, space planning, construction cost analysis, potential public-private partnerships, highest and best use analysis, and financial feasibility assessments. This material will be available for citizen consideration in the workshop.
The outcome of this workshop will enable the community to begin the important design phase scheduled for June-January.
The construction phase is now planned for January 2015-January 2016.
The diagram below depicts all three phases graphically.
