Zephyr and the Robert Green Company conducted two (2) Citizens’ Participation Program / community outreach events on the proposed project site on May 6 and May 13, 2017. On both dates, the event was held from 10AM until 2PM. These two events were designed as the first steps implementing in the Citizens’ Participation Program as described in Municipal Code section 23.08. This letter and supporting documents are intended to summarize the results of the first two meetings. As required by the Municipal Code, a more formal report, including project design responses to community input, will be submitted later in the process. Both events were noticed via newspaper publication, “E-blast” and mailers sent to both Del Mar and Solana Beach citizens. The May 13th event was the publicly noticed event pursuant to CPP requirements.

Four (4) event “tent” stations with exhibits were presented for visitors’ review and feedback:

1) “Welcome – Key Facts” station and request for sign-in as guests arrived, introduction of the applicant team and a brief description of the property. Zephyr and Robert Green Company representatives served as hosts at this station. A total of 102 visitors signed in on May 6th, often accompanied by another person, so in addition to the signed-in visitors, we estimate that approximately 200-plus attended. On May 13th, a total of 134 visitors signed in and we estimate that approximately 300-plus visitors attended.

Community members are welcomed to the event and given instructions.
