Setting Process for Fiscal Years 2016 and 2017 in Progress
Work is in progress to develop the City’s work plan and budget for the next two years starting July 1, 2015. The process begins with goal-setting by the City Council, which this year incorporated goals and priorities identified by the City’s citizen advisory committees and findings from the recently completed Citizen Satisfaction Survey. Budget workshops with the City Council are planned for May 11th and 12th.
The new Watermark neighborhood on Jimmy Durante is expected to have seven affordable housing units. Opponents of this project are reported to have characterized housing candidates as “undesirables.” The income range for affordable units is about $45,000 to 65,000. Based upon the demographics of the participants enrolled in Del Mar’s existing Rental Subsidy program, these new units may be attractive to those seeking to be close to employment or schools such as teachers, lifeguards, single parents, fire fighters, post-grad students and seniors, hardly undesirables.
