MRCA Wants To Build House On “Parkland”
Written by 991KBU on July 11, 2018
The MRCA says the city of Malibu is biased as it denied them permission to build a house next to a creek in lower Ramirez Canyon … the Sycamore Park neighborhood.
MRCA has used state water bond money … intended to protect creeks and riparian areas … by preserving vancat land.
They bought a vacant lot in the Sycamore Park neighborhood … supposedly to preserve the vacant land.
But now they want to build a house there.
It has without City or state permits installed a park there …
But for some reason … it has also applied to the city of Malibu to also build a house there.
This is on land purchased with state bond money intended to buy vacant land to keep it from being developed.
But the permit to build a house there is expiring … and the city planning commission has been
routinely … citywide turning down extensions for building plans … unless there is actual progress In building the house.
So … MRCA’s extension request was turned down by the planning commission.
The Malibu Times reports that an appeal has been filed by the M R C A … to the city council.
M R C A says … the planning commission was biased against them.
They complain that the Sycamore Creek guard shack is preventing their architect from physically reaching the property to design their house.
Says M R C A and we quote …
The City of Malibu “has demonstrated a clear bias towards the M R C A over the recent months, calling into question its ability to render a fair and impartial hearing on this CDP extension request.”
The appeal goes before the unbiased Malibu city council sometime this fall.
