Guide to Planning Commission Proceedings

As a result of the Coronavirus (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.  In order to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19, the Planning Commission meeting will be open and public but conducted virtually because meeting in person would present imminent risks to the health or safety of attendees. This way the public, the staff, and the Commission will not be physically in the same place.

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. Members of the public wishing to speak during the meeting must participate through the Zoom application. You must first sign up to speak before the item you would like to speak on has been called by the Chair and then you must be present in the Zoom conference to be recognized. Please visit https://malibucity.org/VirtualMeeting and follow the directions for signing up to speak and downloading the Zoom application.

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. Resolutions concerning decisions made at previous meetings are for the purpose of memorializing the decision to assure the accuracy of the findings, the prior vote, and any conditions imposed.

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.

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.  Members of the public wishing to speak during the meeting must participate through the Zoom application. Each speaker is limited to three (3) minutes. In order to speak, individuals must visit https://malibucity.org/VirtualMeeting and follow the directions for signing up to speak and downloading the Zoom application.

Old Business items have appeared on previous agendas but have either been continued or tabled to this meeting with no final action having been taken. Public comment shall follow the rules as set forth under Oral Communication.

Items in New Business are items, which are appearing for the first time for formal action.  Public comment shall follow the rules as set forth under Oral Communication.

Planning Commission Items are items, which individual members of the Planning Commission may bring up for action, to propose future agenda items or to suggest future staff assignments.  No new items will be taken-up after 10:30 p.m. without a two-thirds vote of the Planning Commission.

Planning Commission meetings are aired live and replayed on City of Malibu Government Access Channel 3 and are available on demand on the City’s website at www.malibucity.org/video. Copies of the staff reports or other written documentation relating to each item of business described are available upon request by emailing planningcommission@malibucity.org.
