The Malibu Planning Commission was not able to vote on the Malibu High School lights project Tuesday because of conflicts.
Commissioners were expected to consider a coastal development permit and a conditional use permit for four 70-foot permanent lights at the sports field at .
Newly appointed Commissioner Mikke Pierson had a conflict because of a donation of $500 to the Shark Fund, which goes toward the lights project, according to Malibu Assistant City Attorney Gregg Kovacevich.
Commissioner Roohi Stack was also disqualified from voting because she is involved with the fundraising and donated $500, Kovacevich said. In addition, Commissioner Jeffrey Jennings lives too close to the high school and cannot vote on it per the Political Reform Act.
The permits were taken off the commission's agenda and will go before the Malibu City Council on June 25.
