The husband and wife that own a Malibu Road property where they hope to build a new two-story home have asked for more time to respond to neighborhood protest over the plans.
A hearing on a coastal development permit and variance for the proposed 4,277-square-foot home at 24024 Malibu Road was originally set for the Tuesday, Jan. 22 meeting at Malibu City Hall.
The agenda for the meeting now requests that the plans be moved to "a date uncertain."
"They wanted more time to respond to the correspondence received on the project," said Joyce Parker-Bozylinski, Malibu's planning director.
The plans call for a two-car garage, concrete bulkhead, staircase to the beach, swimming pool and spa, view corridors and the installation of an alternative onsite wastewater treatment system, according to city documents.
The property, which is currently vacant and only houses a fence, guardrail and concrete retaining wall, is owned by Ardie and Tania Tavangarian.
A petition started by Malibu resident Oliver Damavandi in opposition to the plans has garnered 77 signatures as of this week. Neighbors are concerned that the proposed two-story home may compromise the stability of the slope and disrupt their views.
