Andy, I wish I had had the opportunity to buy Malibu Lagoon from State Parks. You would still be walking out to surf on the old bridges.

First find a way to slow down or down size the centralized wastewater plant construction.This will cast into doubt the value of the commercial property. When the value is in question is the right time to buy, not when the city is assisting in the solutions to big development. %00,000 gallons a day of disposal means they are sizing the plant for most of the undeveloped parcels.

I meant 500,000 gallons of treated effluent a day.

TDS credits for pch commercial property would rezone it for housing. the housing could be master planned so traffic does not just empty out onto the pch. the housing may be a little higher zoned and provide some lower cost housing to meet city of malibu requirements for low cost units. its a possible solution for the city. the city definitely needs better planning and i dont have all the answers. but the job of city counsel is residents/voters first. not school district, state parks or regional water quality. they need to be focused on working for us.

Terry, that's a possibility and certainly food for thought. I expect you'll get resistance from the Preserve Malibu folks, who have stated their opposition to lower cost housing on this website before. It would also require traffic mitigation, which is the real issue with the civic center. Of course, if the city is involved it could mean more 'solutions' like legacy park, which has proven particularly effective at reducing any human presence in the area.
