Malibu Park Campus Concept To Get Grand Reveal Next Week
Written by 991KBU on September 12, 2019
Santa Monica school officials continue to plan for the reconstruction of Malibu High School … and Malibu Middle School.
And plans for the general layout of the twin campuses will be revealed next Wednesday … here in Malibu Park.
The meeting will give students, parents and community members an update … they will be asked for input on the campus planning process.
The concept … hashed out last spring at a similar meeting last spring.
It separates the middle school and the high schools on campus … one east .. one west.
In the middle … joint use of a new performing arts center … the new gym and the pool.
Joint use of the fields to the north too.
This plan features a large U-shaped drop-off quad designed to support improved traffic circulation along Morning View Drive.
And that driveway the slices up the middle of the school campus … parents have said they hate that … the new design may address that.
The meeting will be town-hall style, with a presentation followed by audience questions and
2 new classrooms opened this semester.
A combined administration, library and science lab / classroom building is under construction … scheduled to open in the fall of 2020.
These projects are funded by Measures BB and ES.
The Malibu Middle School and High School campus reconstruction will take six to eight years.
About half of the funds have already been raised through Measure M… the Malibu only bond issue that voters approved last fall.
The meeting will be next Wednesday … from 6 to 8 in the evening … at the old Juan Cabrillo School cafetorium … on Morning View Drive.
