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.

Get Involved

The City is seeking community input for the discussion of sea-level rise at public workshops:

  • Coastal Vulnerability Public Workshop No. 1 -  April 30, 2020 event CANCELLED due to the COVID-19 pandemic; will be rescheduled
  • Coastal Vulnerability Public Workshop No. 2 - event is CANCELLED until further notice due to the COVID-19 pandemic
