As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the City is under a state of local emergency, as well as states of emergency that have been declared in the County of Los Angeles, state of California, and a federal emergency declared by the President of the United States. At the direction of the Governor, starting March 19, 2020, the entire state is subject to stay-at-home orders. On March 21, the County of Los Angeles Public Health Officer issued a revised Safer at Home Order. These measures are imposed to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19. To comply with these emergency measures, the Planning Commission meeting will be open and public but is being held via teleconference only. This way the public, staff, and Commission will not be physically in the same place. The City is endeavoring to employ technology that will allow the public to view the meeting live and participate.
Members of the public are encouraged to submit written correspondence to email@example.com for any item on which they would like to comment. Public participation through electronic or telephonic means will be allowed consistent with the following (details on how to participate telephonically or electronically will be available in an amended agenda at malibucity.org/agendacenter.)
The Oral Communication portion of the agenda is for members of the public to present items which are not listed on the agenda, but are under the subject matter jurisdiction of the Planning Commission. No action may be taken under, except to direct staff, unless the Commission, by a two-thirds vote, determines that there is a need to take immediate action and that need came to the attention of the City after the posting of the agenda. Although no action may be taken, the Commission and staff will follow up at an appropriate time on those items needing response. Each speaker is limited to three (3) minutes.
Items in Consent Calendar Section A have already been considered by the Commission at a previous meeting where the public was invited to comment, after which a decision was made. These items are not subject to public discussion at this meeting because the vote taken at the previous meeting was final.

Items in Consent Calendar Section B have not been discussed previously by the Commission. If discussion is desired, an item may be removed from the Consent Calendar for individual consideration. Commissioners may indicate a negative or abstaining vote on any individual item by so declaring prior to the vote on the motion to adopt the entire Consent Calendar. Items excluded from the Consent Calendar will be taken up by the Commission following the action on the Consent Calendar. The Commission first will take up the items for which public speaker requests have been submitted. Public speakers shall follow the rules as set forth under Oral Communication.
For Public Hearings involving zoning matters, the appellant and applicant will be given 15 minutes each to present their position to the Planning Commission, including rebuttal time. All other testimony shall follow the rules as set forth under Oral Communication.
