NOV rebuild townhall_Newsflash

The City of Malibu will hold a Woolsey Fire Rebuilding Town Hall Meeting on Saturday, November 23, 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM at City Hall to offer resources and assistance to help residents advance their post-Woolsey Fire home rebuilding projects, answer questions and share information about important upcoming changes to the Building Code.

SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 23, 2019
10:00 AM to 12:00 PM
Malibu City Hall
23825 Stuart Ranch Rd., Malibu CA 90265

The meeting will be led by Malibu’s recently appointed Environmental Sustainability Department Director and Building Official Yolanda Bundy, who is spearheading the City’s rebuilding efforts. Bundy will discuss the updates to the California Building Code that will affect home rebuilding projects in Malibu starting January 1, 2020.  

There will be a discussion of some of the common challenges that homeowners face that can delay Woolsey Fire rebuilding projects, and how best to avoid or resolve those challenges, including fire access and permitting issues, Onsite Wastewater Treatment System (OWTS) requirements, and rules surrounding grading and the re-use of home foundations.
Bundy will also offer guidance on how to plan your rebuilding budget and timeline, and discuss the City’s new over-the-counter, in-house reviews for second submittals, which will speed up permitting.

No RSVPs are needed. For more information, call 310-456-2489, ext. 378 or email lmacias@malibucity.org.
