What goes here? A Forest Pansy. In cooperation with Del Mar Village Association, the project team has placed placards in planting areas to show the varieties of trees that will be planted in each. When the project is finished, Camino del Mar between Plaza and 9th Street will be lined with 143 trees.

July 16: "Rocky Road" ice cream social

We understand how disruptive construction can be. To thank residents and business owners for their patience, we are hosting a Rocky Road-themed ice cream social (PDF) from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. July 16 at the Del Mar Civic Center, 1050 Camino del Mar. As the project reaches the home stretch, join us for a scoop as we show displays and answer your questions.

Streetscape in a nutshell

The Downtown Streetscape Project will beautify Camino del Mar and improve safety between 9th and Plaza streets. The $7.2 million project includes new sidewalks, crosswalks, bike lanes, street furniture, landscaping, paving and other improvements. Construction is scheduled to run through August. The Downtown Streetscape Project was first envisioned in 1996 as part of a citywide street and sidewalk improvement program.

Monday: Biweekly briefing, public welcome

Residents and business owners are invited to meet the project team and get the latest information on construction activity during biweekly briefings at the Del Mar Civic Center Town Hall, 1050 Camino del Mar. The next briefing is set for 9 a.m. Monday, July 8. 

Free parking at Civic Center

Visitors to downtown Del Mar can park for free at the Del Mar Civic Center, 1050 Camino Del Mar. The garage is accessible from entrances on 10th and 11th streets and by a stairway or elevator that connect to the plaza above.
