Regional Planning Agency Says Malibu Must Add 76 Residences To Local Zoning Plan
Written by 991KBU on September 4, 2020
It looks like Malibu will have to change its zoning rules .. to allow 76 more residences to be built here.
That’s under a new quota just approved by the Southern California Association of Governments.
All California cities face enormous increases in the number of homes the state wants them to build over the next decade.
Under state housing laws … the region must provide zoning for more than 1.3 million new homes by the end of this decade.
That’s nearly as many new front doors as Orange and Ventura counties combined have now.
Every city must provide rezoning … if necessary … to accomplish the goal.
If not … road money and other regional funding grants will be cut off.
Malibu is getting off relatively easy … a 1 percent increase.
Under the planning formula … Malibu needs to increase its housing stock by a mere 76 units ….
27 of those units must be very low income housing,
And 19 of them must be low income housing.
A massive transportation and land-use plan was adopted for the area from Ventura to El Centro by the Southern California Association of Governments yesterday.
Population, household and job forecasts contained in the report serve as the basis for how many new homes each of the region’s six counties and 191 cities must zone for by October 2029.
Local governments that disagree with those allocations will be able to appeal those numbers starting Sept. 11.
