Malibu : Land-Use Hearing Scheduled

The Board of Supervisors will hold a public hearing on the proposed Malibu land-use plan Sept. 25 at 9:30 a.m. in Room 381 of the Hall of Administration, 500 W. Temple St., Los Angeles.

Last month, the Regional Planning Commission approved a plan that would limit growth in Malibu to 6,582 residential units, but would drop a requirement that builders purchase lots to preserve open space before receiving approval for subdivisions.

The California Coastal Commission and the county must agree on a land-use plan before it can take effect. The county Planning Commission’s version differs in several respects from a version passed by the state last year.

The plan that supervisors will consider is available for review at three locations: Room 1162 of the Hall of Records, 320 W. Temple St.; the Malibu Community Library, 23519 W. Civic Center Way, Malibu, and the Las Virgenes Community Library, 29130 W. Roadside Drive, Agoura.


Supervisors may take action after the hearing is closed, said Dennis Morefield, a spokesman for Supervisor Deane Dana. Dana’s 4th District includes Malibu.
