CITY COUNCIL & MANAGEMENT
(NEW) CITY COUNCIL ACTS TO BRING SNACK SHACK BACK TO BLUFFS PARK
VIDEO: On March 27, the City Council voted unanimously on several short and long-term measures to bring back food service to Little League games at Malibu Bluffs Park to replace the “Snack Shack,” which was closed down for safety in 2019. It was beloved in the Little League community as a place where kids could gather, socialize, and volunteer to help operate food sales to learn skills and responsibility. In the short term, the Council approved purchasing a temporary food-service trailer to be delivered by May 15. The City Council directed staff to demolish the old Snack Shack; initiate a Local Coastal Program (LCP) Amendment and Zone Text Amendment to authorize a permanent food service structure; prepare plans for operating the food service trailer and construction and operation of a permanent food service structure; consult with the Parks and Recreation Commission on the design of a permanent food service structure; and hold a policy discussion on the allowed food service uses at Bluffs Park within the next month. Watch video of the City Council's discussion of the item (clip starts 1:16:06).

SCHEDULE A HOME WILDFIRE HARDENING ASSESSMENT FOR COMPLYING WITH NEW WILDFIRE SAFETY RULES
Homeowners can get help with complying with updated County and State wildfire safety requirements by scheduling a free Home Wildfire Hardening Assessment with the City's Fire Safety Liaisons. Many Malibu residents will be receiving Brush Clearance Notices from the LA County Fire Department for the first time due to updated maps, and the State will require all flammable materials to be removed from within five feet of any structure starting in 2024. (See details on updated County and State requirements below). The Fire Safety Liaisons will come to your home to show you how to harden your property 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.
MANY MALIBU HOMEOWNERS WILL GET A BRUSH CLEARANCE NOTICE FOR THE FIRST TIME
Many Malibu residents will be receiving brush clearance notices from the LA County Fire Department for the first time. Notices are being sent to all properties within the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection designated Very High Fire Hazard Severity Zone (VHFHSZ), which includes all of Malibu. Previously, notices were only sent to homes that were deemed most vulnerable via visual inspection or historical fire data. That means that the number of homes receiving notices in Malibu will increase from 4,100 to 5,600. The inspection requirement for all homes within the VHFSZ has been in place for decades, but recent GIS/mapping software upgrades have allowed all structures to be identified, many of them for the first time. For more information, see the Brush Clearance FAQs and the annual Brush Clearance notice.
NEW STATE LAW REQUIRING FIVE-FOOT EMBER RESISTANT ZONE
Beginning in 2024, the LA County Fire Department (LACOFD) will be enforcing AB-3074, a newly enacted state law requiring the removal of all flammable materials from within five feet of any structure, which is designated as “Zone 0.” LACOFD personnel will be conducting outreach to inform residents on the 2024 Zone 0 requirements when they conduct this year’s required inspections. Further assistance in preparing and complying with AB 3074 is available by requesting a free Home Wildfire Hardening Assessment from one of the City’s Fire Safety Liaisons by visiting the Fire Safety webpage. More information on AB 3074 is available online.
SIGN UP FOR FIRE HAZARD TREE REMOVAL PROGRAM
The Fire Safety Liaisons are still adding properties to the list to remove trees under the City’s Hazard Tree Removal Program. The trees must be dead to be considered for this program. To sign up for this program, please email FireSafety@MalibuCity.org with your name, address and phone number and the type and number of dead trees on your property. This is a first-come, first-served program and there are currently dozens of properties already on the list.

(NEW) MALIBU’S OFFICIAL CERT TEAM RECEIVES AWARD FOR CONTRIBUTIONS TO COMMUNITY-WIDE PREPAREDNESS
The Malibu Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) has received an award from the California Emergency Services Association – Southern Chapter (CESA-SC) for its many contributions towards community-wide emergency preparedness in Malibu. Following the communications blackout during the 2018 Woolsey Fire, the CERT Team joined with the City’s efforts to improve radio, satellite, and back-up power capabilities to enable emergency communications during future disasters. They established a radio network with repeaters to enable handheld radios to be used by CERT volunteers and City staff when power, cellphone, phone and internet networks are down. They are currently installing solar power, and satellite phone and internet capabilities on the City’s six emergency bins. The bins, which the CERT Team maintains, serve as Information Stations and Points of Distribution during disasters and will be able to offer phone and internet over Wi-Fi, device charging, and emergency communications for residents.
(NEW) CITY PARTICIPATES IN MULTI-AGENCY TSUNAMI RESPONSE EXERCISE DURING CALIFORNIA TSUNAMI PREPAREDNESS WEEK
March 25-31 is California Tsunami Preparedness Week, when emergency response agencies promote public awareness and preparedness for the threat of Tsunamis. Although they are rare, any coast is vulnerable to Tsunamis, and in our era of climate change and sea level rise, could become an even greater threat. Malibu’s Public Safety Director joined the statewide exercise that simulated a Tsunami generated by a 9.5 earthquake in northern Chile which would impact the entire western coast of the United States. Malibu, and all of Los Angeles County would have more than 10 hours notice before the arrival of the first waves, and the wave height would be as high as 6 feet above the current tide level, which could inundate all of Malibu’s beaches, damaging or destroying homes, businesses and infrastructure in the Colony neighborhood, the Country Mart and Malibu Village area, and any beach front homes that are not sufficiently elevated.
Tsunami Preparedness - The earthquake is your warning signal. Know your evacuation routes in advance. Get to high ground immediately and stay there. Learn your evacuation routes, and get more preparedness information on the website.
(NEW) CITY COUNCIL TO CONSIDER ORDINANCE TO ADDRESS "SHARED OWNERSHIP" TIME-SHARE HOME BUSINESS MODEL IN MALIBU
On April 10, 2023, the City Council will consider a new ordinance to be included into the City's Local Coastal Program and Municipal Code to address the use "time-share" homes in the City. The staff report will be available on the website in advance. Typically, a time-share use single-family home is sold or marketed as “fractional ownership” or “co-ownership” homes that allow each buyer to purchase a one-eighth interest in a limited liability company that will own the home. In turn, each owner receives a one-eighth share along with the right to use the home for one-eighth of each year. The City Council and residents have expressed concerns that time-share homes would negatively change the character of Malibu neighborhoods, reduce available housing, cause party-house nuisances, and other issues.
(NEW) TEMPORARY USE PERMIT ORDINANCE UPDATE
On March 20, the Planning Commission held a public hearing to update regulations related to Temporary Use Permits (TUPs), and to consider the recommendations made by the Zoning Ordinances Revision and Code Enforcement Subcommittee (ZORACES). After conducting the public hearing and deliberating, the Commission directed staff to bring back a resolution with revisions to the proposed Ordinance at its May 1, meeting. For more information, see the staff report. On December 13, 2021, City Council directed staff to prepare a Zoning Text Amendment (ZTA) and to hold hearings before ZORACES and the Planning Commission before presenting a final ordinance to the City Council. ZORACES held two meetings on the ZTA on April 14 and October 12, 2022 and made its recommendations. Once the Commission’s recommendations are finalized, the item will be scheduled for a City Council public hearing.
(NEW) ACCESSORY DWELLING UNIT ORDINANCE UPDATE
On March 14, 2023 the Planning Commission held a public hearing on the Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) proposed ordinance. The Planning Commission finalized its recommendation to the City Council. At this time, a City Council hearing date has not been scheduled. On August 22, 2022, the City Council directed staff to minimize substantive changes in the Local Coastal Program (LCP) for the proposed ordinance which complies with state law, in order to protect sensitive coastal resources and public access to the coast, and to 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.
