Planners Seek Comment on Civic Center Proposals

City planning officials will solicit public comment on two proposals for the Malibu Civic Center specific plan at a series of meetings next week.

Planning director Craig Ewing said he will summarize the competing proposals at the meetings.

One proposed plan was prepared by a citizens’ advisory committee between January 1996 and July 1997, he said. An alternate plan was developed by a group called Malibu Coalition for Slow Growth. That group presented a revision of the advisory committee’s plan to City Council earlier this year; the council voted to let the public consider the revised plan as well, Ewing said.

Both plans address types and density of land use and overall character of the civic center.


The public meetings will be held Tuesday at Juan Cabrillo Elementary School, 30237 Morning View Drive; Wednesday at Duke’s of Malibu restaurant, 21150 Pacific Coast Highway; and next Thursday at Hughes Research Laboratories, 3011 Malibu Canyon Road. All will begin at 7 p.m.

Copies of the plans may be obtained from the Planning Department at City Hall, 23555 Civic Center Way.
