SAN DIEGO (KGTV)--Today Del Mar residents have a chance to share their thoughts about turning the Surfside Race Place into a concert venue.

The Del Mar Fairgrounds is pushing to build a $19 million facility at the struggling off-track betting facility.  It would draw more than 100 acts a year.

Some residents have already opposed the project because of noise, traffic and security concerns.  They'll have the opportunity to speak at the Del Mar City Council meeting tonight at 6 p.m., at 2010 Jimmy Durante Dr.
