City of Malibu Urges California Coastal Commission to Not Further Delay Malibu High School Project
The City of Malibu joins the Santa Monica Malibu Unified School District (SMMUSD) in asking Malibu community members to share their opinion on delays by the California Coastal Commission (CCC) in processing the Malibu High School Campus Specific Plan construction project. The delay is causing sharp increases in the construction costs, which could rise to the point that the project could become unfeasible for the badly-needed new school that voters approved. The City Council sent a letter urging the CCC to reject the one-year extension and requesting the project be expedited. See the letter: https://www.malibucity.org/DocumentCenter/View/32152/CCC_MMHS-LCPA-extension_OPPOSED_230711.
The CCC is scheduled to review the project during its July 12-14 meeting. Members of the public can submit comments to the CCC Board Members by email to Donne.Brownsey@coastal.ca.gov; Caryl.Hart@coastal.ca.gov; Effie.TurnbullSanders@coastal.ca.gov; Effie.Turnbull-Sanders@coastal.ca.gov; Linda.Escalante@coastal.ca.gov; oberto.Uranga@coastal.ca.gov; Karl.Schwing@coastal.ca.gov; and Steve.Hudson@coastal.ca.gov, or to give public comment during the meeting.
Viewing and commenting instructions and the staff report for the July 12-14 CCC meeting are available at: https://www.coastal.ca.gov/meetings/agenda/#/2023/7.
