Housing Element Update
Project Status
The Local Coastal Program amendment associated with the 2008-2014 Housing Element update is pending California Coastal Commission review and certification.

Housing Element Update
On August 26, 2013, the City Council adopted the 2008-2014 General Plan Housing Element Update and certified the Environmental Impact Report (EIR). As part of the 2008-2014 Housing Element, various amendments and additions to the Malibu Municipal Code, the City’s LCP Local Implementation Plan, and the Zoning Map, including the adoption of a new Chapter 17.41, Affordable Housing was proposed. The amendments are pending certification by the California Coastal Commission. Subsequently, on September 10, 2013, Department of Housing and Community Development certified the housing element.

On January 13, 2014, the City Council adopted the 2013-2021 Housing Element Update. On February 12, 2014, the Department of Housing and Community Development certified the housing element.  

On July 13, 2015, the City Council adopted Ordinance No. 388  an amendment to M.M.C. Section 17.41.010 (Affordable Housing) to amend the provisions of subsection (D)(2)(b) to correct a drafting error in and clarify the intent of Ordinance No. 375 by deleting the words “density bonus and” from this subsection.

Background
The State of California Housing Element Law, enacted in 1969, mandates that local governments adequately plan to meet the existing and projected housing needs of the community in all economic levels. Included in this State law is the requirement that local governments adopt land use plans and regulatory systems that provide opportunities for, and do not unduly constrain, housing development. The State also requires that Housing Elements be updated and certified every five years to reflect the most recent trends in demographics and employment that may affect existing and future housing demand and supply.
