Malibu Inn Motel

Project STATUS

Updated 9/15/21 - On September 8, 2021, the Planning Commission held a public hearing to consider the Malibu Inn Motel project environmental document and project entitlements. After conducting the public comment portion of the public hearing and deliberations, the Commission  continued the item to the Monday, November 1, 2021, Regular Planning Commission meeting  and directed staff to bring back a supplemental report clarifying the project’s required and proposed floor area ratio. The staff report will be available online prior to the meeting. Based on the required entitlements, the project only requires a hearing before Planning Commission because no code amendments are required. The project is subject to a local appeal period and is within the Appeal Jurisdiction of the California Coastal Commission; therefore, the project could be appealed to the City Council and/or California Coastal Commission. If the project is not appealed, the Planning Commission's decision will be final.
