The Project will restore three acres of sandy beach and dune habitat at Zuma and Point Dume County Beaches, providing a cost-effective and low-impact solution to increase the resiliency of the beach shorelines.

The City is in the process of completing a Coastal Vulnerability Assessment to gain more information on sea level rise. This assessment will determine the vulnerability and the projected impacts of sea-level rise in Malibu for the short-term, mid-term, and long-term. Developing a better understanding of what is at risk and identifying potential solutions represents a proactive approach that will help the City and community plan for coastal impacts from sea-level rise.
The City will include community input in its decisions related to sea-level rise. Unfortunately, the public workshops scheduled for 2020 were cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The workshops will be rescheduled as soon as it is safe to hold large, in-person public meetings.
