UPCOMING


WILDFIRE SEASON

(NEW) FIRE CONDITIONS UPDATE

Live Fuel Moisture and Conditions - LFM currently 56% (60% and below is considered critical) - As part of continuous wildfire preparedness, the City tracks Live Fuel Moisture (LFM) as well as relative humidity, temperature, and dead fuel moisture to determine fire conditions for Malibu. LFM is at 56% as of October 27, down significantly from 63% two weeks earlier. The LFM is the percentage of water content to dry matter in live vegetation. LFM can be as high as 200%. The Los Angeles County Fire Department Forestry Division conducts sampling approximately every two weeks and posts the results on their website. The low LFM level increase the potential for ignition and flammability, but without strong, sustained winds, the potential is lower for large fire spread. A significant increase in LFM will require two or more inches of rainfall spread out over several weeks. (NEW) - FIRE CONDITIONS UPDATE

The Burning Index is currently at 67 (low) for the Santa Monica Mountains, substantially below the area's threshold of 192, but that could worsen with the NWS forecast this weekend of elevated to brief critical fire weather conditions through Sunday across wind prone mountains and valleys of LA and Ventura counties, due to offshore winds and very low humidities. There is a chance of widespread showers next week Tuesday night through Thursday. See regional weather conditions and forecasts on the NWS LA/Oxnard website.


(NEW) - LA COUNTY ESTABLISHES NEW DISASTER RESPONSE AND EVACUATION ZONES THAT MATCH MALIBU’S EVACUATION ZONES

The City of Malibu joins Los Angeles County public safety agencies, County Board of Supervisors District 3, and the Cities of Agoura Hills, Calabasas, Hidden Hills, and Westlake Village In “Know Your Zone,” an effort to introduce the community to the County’s newly established official evacuation zones and the County’s new Zonehaven AWARE online tool. The County’s new zones in the Malibu area are the same as the City of Malibu’s Evacuation Zones that are part of the Mass Evacuation Plan that the City Council adopted February 24, 2020 following a recommendation from the Malibu Disaster Council. The Mass Evacuation Plan, an update to the City’s Emergency Operations Plan, was created by a working group convened after the 2018 Woolsey Fire to improve communication, coordination and response on wildfire evacuations in Malibu. Enter an address into the Zonehaven AWARE interactive map to find your zones, as well as real-time status updates, shelter options and other valuable information specific to that zone.

 

(NEW) - MALIBU ENCOURAGES TAKING STEPS TOWARD WILDFIRE PREPAREDNESS ON WOOLSEY FIRE ANNIVERSARY

Four years ago on November 9, 2018, Malibu was devastated by the worst wildfire in the City’s history and the largest in Los Angeles County history. The Woolsey Fire destroyed nearly 500 homes in Malibu, took the lives of three people, and left the community traumatized and struggling to recover and rebuild. On the anniversary of the Woolsey Fire, the City commemorates the catastrophe, and offers support to all the people who lost homes and possessions, were displaced, and are still recovering. The City renews its pledge to never stop working to help the community rebuild and recover, and never stop striving for community-wide wildfire preparedness and resiliency. Following the Woolsey Fire, the City Council declared November 9 as the City of Malibu's Annual Day of Preparedness. This year, the City asks every homeowner, resident, business, employee, student, school and organization in Malibu to take at least one step to be more prepared for wildfires. 

Examples of steps you can take: make a wildfire emergency plan; gather emergency supplies: make an emergency plan for pets or horses; check in on elderly or disabled neighbors; sign up for emergency alerts; harden your home against flying embers: conduct brush clearance; get the free emergency survival guides from the City and LA County; sign up for a crisis first aid or other training; maintain situational awareness by monitoring fire weather conditions on local news and on the National Weather Service website. Learn more about wildfire preparedness on the Fire Safety webpage


(NEW) - STATE LAW NOW REQUIRES INSURANCE COMPANIES TO OFFER DISCOUNTS FOR WILDIFRE PREPAREDNESS AND MITIGATION

California Insurance Commissioner Ricardo Lara announced that, effective October 17, insurance companies would be required to give discounts for wildfire safety and mitigation efforts made by homeowners and businesses. Currently, about 40% of insurance companies provide such discounts. The state’s Safer From Wildfires framework includes a list of expert-recommended actions that home and business owners can take to better protect their properties from fires. High on the list are steps to harden homes and properties, including brush clearance, landscaping improvements, covering eave vents with metal mesh, and removing dead, dry vegetation and flammable materials such as wood furniture, firewood and decking from away from structures. A list of insurance companies offering the discounts is posted on the California Department of Insurance website.


START GETTING PREPARED for wildfires NOW

Residents should be preparing for wildfire season. Closely monitor local fire weather conditions and warnings on the National Weather Service Los Angeles/Oxnard website. Create or review your family or business emergency plan, including evacuation routes and reunification locations, and gather emergency supplies. Check the expiration dates on food and medication. Keep vehicle fuel tanks above half full. Make sure you are able to open electric gates or garage doors when the power is out. For preparedness guidance, get the Malibu Survival Guide. Most importantly, make sure flammable materials and vegetation are cleared away from your home. Schedule a free Home Wildfire Hardening Assessment by emailing FireSafety@MalibuCity.org, calling 310-456-2489, ext. 388 or visiting the Fire Safety webpage


SCHEDULE YOUR FREE HOME WILDFIRE HARDENING ASSESSMENT 

Malibu homeowners can schedule a free home wildfire hardening assessment with the City’s Fire Safety Liaisons to learn how to protect your home from the millions of burning embers that can fly up to two miles out ahead of a wind-driven wildfire. Flying embers are a leading cause of homes burning down during wildfires. The 30-60 minute inspections follow the Fire Code and nationally recognized best practices. You can learn simple and often inexpensive steps, such as maintaining good brush clearance, keeping dead vegetation and flammable materials such as wood furniture away from the house, and covering up eave vents with metal mesh. Schedule an appointment by emailing FireSafety@MalibuCity.org or calling 310-456-2489, ext. 388 or visiting the Fire Safety webpage


PUBLIC SAFETY

(NEW) CITY COUNCIL ADVANCES SCHOOL SAFETY EFFORT

The City Council awarded an agreement with the consulting firm Guidepost Solutions LLC to conduct a comprehensive and holistic school safety assessment.  The assessment will be inclusive of all K-12 public schools in the City and will extend beyond physical security and safety procedures to include a review and analysis of behavioral health programs, policies and procedures as well.  The consultant will begin a discovery process in the coming weeks and should complete the review with a final report in three to four months.


(NEW) - UPDATE ON CITY EFFORTS TO ADDRESS HOMELESSNESS 

The City’s Public Safety Department provided an update to the Homelessness Task Force on October 19 on fires attributed to homeless encampments this year, as well as Malibu’s homelessness statistics. There have been four fires attributed to homeless encampments as of October 18, 2022, a significant decrease compared to the 23 homeless encampment-related fires in 2021. The recent Greater Los Angeles Homeless Count showed 81 people experiencing homelessness in Malibu, or about four individuals per square mile, a significant decrease from 2021 and 2020. The City of Malibu has fewer people experiencing homeless per square mile compared with other west Los Angeles area cities. The Task Force was also updated on the City’s Request for Proposals for an organization or facility to provide interim shelter beds for people experiencing homelessness in Malibu. Watch video of the update: (starts at 37:44). For more information about the City’s efforts to address homelessness, visit the webpage.

(NEW) - SEPTEMBER 2022 HOMELESS OUTREACH TEAM REPORT

The City’s Homeless Outreach Team, which consists of three outreach workers and a housing navigator from The People Concern, submits monthly reports on its activities. In September 2022, the Outreach Team was in contact with 104 people experiencing homelessness, eight of whom were either relocated or placed into permanent or temporary housing. Among those relocated was a person from Malibu who lost the home that she had been renting during the Woolsey Fire. With assistance from the City’s Outreach Team, she was able to find a new home in Santa Barbara. The Outreach Team also reported on its work with City Staff and the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department to proactively engage with people experiencing homelessness in an effort to prevent fires related to homeless encampments. Current and past monthly Homeless Outreach reports are available on the website.  


(NEW) - SHERIFF’S CRIME AND SAFETY UPDATE TO CITY COUNCIL 

Lt. Dustin Carr, Malibu’s liaison from the Malibu-Lost Hills Sheriff’s Station, gave a crime and safety update to the City Council on October 24. Watch the update (clip starts at 3:15:01). Quality of life issues – Lt. Carr addressed an exotic car show that has been promoted to take place on November 6 at Zuma Beach, the same day as the Malibu Half Marathon. The event organizers will be setting up barricades to block access to the parking lot starting late evening November 5, so it would be very difficult for a car show event to take place. The LA County Sheriff’s Department (LASD) will be increasing Deputy presence there and there will be zero tolerance of any display of speed or activity that puts anyone in danger. Crime statistics - Lt. Carr reported a strong decrease in many serious crimes in Malibu during the quarter ending September 30. Aggravated assaults were down 14%; robberies were down 33%; armed robberies were down 57%; auto theft was down 54%; petty theft was down 33%. Burglaries were an area of concern, increasing 75%. For context, Lt. Carr explained that many of those incidents involved a vacation home or vacant property, transients trespassing on a vacant property, and low-value burglaries. Many of the burglaries occurred on properties that were unlocked so Lt. Carr urged the public to make sure that their gates, doors and windows are locked and to consider a security system. Traffic safety – Collisions have increased in the City overall year-to-date, there is a 50% reduction fatal collisions. See the LASD’s monthly crime, traffic and safety reports for Malibu on the webpage. 


SCHOOL DISTRICT SEPARATION

(NEW) Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District and City of Malibu Announce Progress on School District Separation

The framework emerged after months of mediation and joint meetings between the parties dating back to April of this year. See details of the framework and process. There will be many opportunities for public feedback and input as progress is made by the parties. Additional public engagement on this process is expected to begin early in the new calendar year.

PLANNING

The Mountains Recreation & Conservation Authority (MRCA) seeks input from reviewing agencies and the public about the Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for its Malibu Lower-Cost Accommodations Public Works Plan. The Plan proposes a variety of park facility improvements and public outreach programs at the Malibu Bluffs Open Space and the existing campground at Ramirez Canyon Park. Send written comments October 17 through December 16 by mail to “Mountains Recreation & Conservation Authority, RE: Malibu Lower-Cost Accommodations Public Works Plan. Attn: Mario Sandoval, Project Manager. 26800 Mulholland Highway. Calabasas, CA 91302.” Send comments by email to public.comments@mrca.ca.gov.

(NEW) - PUBLIC HEARING ON ACCESSORY DWELLING UNIT ORDINANCE, NOVEMBER 21

On November 21, 2022, the Planning Commission will hold a public hearing on the City's Accessory Dwelling Unit proposed ordinance. For details about the hearing, see the Notice of Public Hearing. The staff report will be available on the website prior to the hearing. On August 22, 2022, the City Council considered the Planning Commission's request for additional studies and direction. At its meeting, the Council directed staff 1) in order to protect sensitive coastal resources and public access to the coast, minimize substantive changes in the Local Coastal Program (LCP) for the proposed ordinance which complies with state law; and 2) bring the item back to the Planning Commission without the studies requested. The state of California has identified ADUs as an important tool to create more affordable housing amidst the statewide housing crisis and has passed several laws to make it easier to build ADUs. The City is preparing an ordinance to be consistent with State laws, and to ensure the regulations reflect Malibu’s needs and characteristics. For more information, visit the ADU webpage. 


(NEW) SPECIAL EVENTS REPORT

Currently, there are permitted events on October 28, November 4, 5 and 6, November 24 through December 24, as well as every Sunday for parking for the Malibu Farmers Market. The City of Malibu Planning Department posts a weekly report of approved event permits on the website. In order for members of the public to be informed of pending event permit applications and to provide an additional opportunity for public input, the City has changed the Event Permit Report format to include all event permit applications deemed complete for review for consistency and compliance with the requirements of the Malibu Municipal Code and the Planning Director’s action on each application. The updated Event Permit Report has been posted to the City's website. To sign up to receive an email or text message when an updated Event Permit Report is posted, visit the e-notifications page (scroll down to the "Special Event Permit Report" category).


CITY WORKING TO ASSIST MALIBU FARMERS MARKET

Although the City of Malibu is not party to agreements that the Malibu Farmers Market has with LA County or Santa Monica College, the City recognizes the value of the Farmers Market to the community. City staff has been working with the Farmers Market to find ways to accommodate access, parking and safety concerns and help them find some additional space as they work through the construction period of the Santa Monica College Campus. The City has been working on potential solutions, including the possibility of moving all or a portion of the event into the street. City staff also explored the possibility of relocating the Farmers Market to the adjacent City-owned Chili Cookoff lot on Civic Center Way and Stuart Ranch Road, but LA County health regulations prohibit a farmers market from operating on a dirt lot. The City has also contacted the County to explore ways to help, and asked the County to ensure the event can operate and that it will be safe. Ultimately it is up to the Farmers Market operator to determine how they wish to proceed. The City will continue to work with the Farmers Market to explore all options that are permissible under City code.
