To improve parking at Del Mar Highlands Town Center in Carmel Valley, a new parking structure is set to open by late 2015. Plans for the construction of the structure, as well as plans to expand Cinepolis Luxury Cinemas and renovate the south side of the shopping center, were unveiled during the April 24 Carmel Valley Community Planning Board meeting.
With input from about 60 residents, city officials are moving forward with some suggestions to ease the impact summer visitors have on those who live in the Beach Colony. Gatherings were held at five homes throughout February to discuss what went well last year — lifeguards received high marks — and areas where improvements could be made.
The Torrey Hills Community Planning Board will hold elections on Tuesday, March 18, for five resident and three business seats.

The board makes recommendations and communicates neighborhood concerns to the City of San Diego and the Planning Department. Local residents and business candidates are encouraged to join the board.
