Volunteers still needed for Del Mar advisory committes

DEL MAR — City Council named six residents to three advisory committees at the July 26 meeting, filling only about half of the existing vacancies.
For a variety of reasons, other positions are now open, basically putting council back where it started from, seeking volunteers for 10 vacancies on six committees.
There were three applicants for three openings on the San Dieguito Lagoon Preservation Committee. Bill Michalsky, Alice Brown and Bob Blanchard were named to four-year terms, making that committee and the Planning Commission the only two without vacancies.
Karen Lockwood, a Del Mar resident since 1966, was appointed to a four-year term on the Parks and Recreation Committee. One volunteer is still needed for that group, which was expanded from five members to seven in June.
Pete Glaser and Kevin Popovic will serve three-year terms on the Communications Technical Advisory Committee, leaving one opening on that board.
Volunteers are also still needed for three vacancies on Traffic and Parking and two on Energy Issues. No applications were submitted for either of those committees.
The Finance Committee must fill two open positions and a resident is needed to serve as an ex-officio alternate on the Design Review Board.

The new deadline to apply for all open positions is Aug. 27.
Citizen interest forms are available in the city clerk’s office at City Hall, 1050 Camino del Mar or on the website.
