Local News in Brief : Zuma Beach to Get $6-Million Face Lift
After making do for decades with old facilities, Malibu’s Zuma Beach and three other strands owned by Los Angeles County should get a multimillion-dollar fix-up under a measure approved by the Board of Supervisors.
The board gave four of the county’s five beaches--Zuma, Nicholas Canyon, Torrance and White Point--top priority for more than $10 million in bond financing approved in June by voters statewide as part of a $776-million park conservation package.
The fifth county beach, a small one in Marina del Rey, has its own maintenance fund and will get none of the $10 million, officials said.
Stepsisters among the 19 beaches that stretch for 31 miles along the county coastline, the county-owned beaches will be refurbished over the next five years, said Larry Charness, planning chief for the county Department of Beaches and Harbors.
