Early poll results suggest a change could be coming to the way the city of Del Mar makes land use decisions.
Measure P proposes an amendment to the Del Mar City Charter that would allow the city “maximum local control” over land use decisions consistent with the city’s Community Plan.
The amendment would exempt the city from all state land use and zoning laws, except where state preemption applies, and allow the city to adopt its own. It would also allow Del Mar to come up with its own process for granting land use entitlements.
Currently, the city’s charter follows general state laws when it comes to most legal matters.
If a majority votes yes on Measure P, the charter amendment will be adopted. If a majority votes no, no changes will be made.
