This late word…

Malibu’s long-awaited municipal skateboard park may face a legal delay.

Developer Scott Gillan threatened lawsuit against the city may be going forward. 

The Malibu city Council is going into a special closed door session tomorrow at 4 PM to discuss a possible anticipated lawsuit.

Last November … the developer ap[peared before the Planning Commission rio demand changes to the design of the skate park.


“They’re gonna look at me like I’m the bad guy, and I’m gonna point to the people [pointing at city staff] who didn’t respond to our requests.

“ I will then appeal it.

“And I will sue the city and I will stop in motion.

“Or you can make simple accommodations.

“I’m pissed.

“You guys are just … just so wrong … and you know know you are wrong.

“That’s it.”

Gillen is developing five multi-multi million dollar homes … some call them castles … in a subdivision that wraps around malibu Bluffs Park.

And as part of the deal to get the hiosues approved … Gillen gave up ownership of the land under the proposed skate park … near the Little League fields at Bluffs Park.

He also kicked in one million dollars towards construction of the facility … with the condition that the skate park ramp be below the surface.

The current plan … he says … puts the ramps too high in the air … and too close to one of the houses he is just finishing. 

It appears that Gillen’s threat to sue the city may be going forward … as all of a sudden the city council is going into closed door session to discuss the threat tomorrow at 4.
