Our vision is to create a low-density retreat that works in harmony with its natural surroundings while being a world-class haven for locals and visitors alike—further enriching the coastal environment in which we dwell.


Marisol will be put forward as a citizen’s initiative on the March 2020 ballot.
 A petition collecting Del Mar voter signatures is currently circulating through September 15th. If you believe the current zoning of 14-16 gated mansions should be changed to open up public access to this incredible site, we hope you will consider signing the petition.
The Site

The 16.5 acre bluff is currently privately owned and zoned to allow large, enclosed mansions with NO public access and view obstructions.

We strongly believe this incredible site should serve more than just a few private residents.

Here’s what we envision instead:

Preserving the Bluff

Embracing and protecting the natural environment with comprehensive sustainability commitments that address bluff erosion, adaptive design, and ongoing maintenance
Public Access

For the first time in over 100 years, the public can enjoy this marvel’s natural setting and views through a network of accessible trails
Conscientious Neighbors

Enhancing the community through public benefits including family-friendly affordable hotel rooms, a new stairway that connects bluff to beach, beachside restrooms, and ample parking
Economic Benefits

In addition to visitors patronizing local businesses, the direct Transient Occupancy Tax revenue is estimated at $4.5M annually, putting long awaited public projects finally within reach
Marisol will provide 1.25 miles of perimeter bluff trails dedicated to the city of Del Mar in perpetuity
