About the Sustainability Advisory Board

The Sustainability Advisory Board was established to assist the City Council in promoting clean and reliable energy and in taking a leadership position in educating its residents and businesses about energy savings programs. It works with other regional and municipal groups to seek combined efforts in energy efficiency and renewable energy sources; advises the council on any bills before the California Legislature that the city should take a position to support or oppose as they affect Del Mar and the San Diego region; and reviews the Del Mar Municipal Code (DMMC) sections relevant to energy consumption and savings in the city and works with the Planning Commission and planning staff to propose revised DMMC language as required.


The Sustainability Advisory Board meets on the third Thursday of each month at 5:30 p.m. in the City Hall Annex.

About the San Dieguito Lagoon Committee

The San Dieguito Lagoon Committee is charged with overseeing the preservation and enhancement of the San Dieguito Lagoon. The committee participates on both local and regional levels. Locally, the committee is provided with monthly sampling reports to monitor the health of the Lagoon, investigates additional public access opportunities, and develops an educational program to uncover a few of the Lagoon's little-known points of interest.

Regionally, the committee participates in the on-going programs of the San Dieguito River Valley JPA, including the lagoon restoration plan, and monitors development that may have an adverse effect on the Lagoon. The committee oversaw the design and construction of Riverpath Del Mar, a meandering path along the southern bank of the Lagoon west of Jimmy Durante Blvd. As urban development further encroaches into the county's open spaces, the Lagoon Committee works hard to keep the San Dieguito Lagoon the regional treasure it is and endeavors to enhance the Lagoon's function, health, and accessibility.
