Malibu’s Emergency Woolsey Fire Rebuild Ordinance Achieve’s Approval Before CCC

The California Coastal Commission has cleared the way for Malibu’s emergency Woolsey Fire rebuild ordinance to achieve its final approval.

The amendment proposed by the City includes revisions to existing temporary housing regulations to allow for temporary housing structures to be placed on a property during reconstruction and allows for these temporary structures to be processed as an emergency permit. Also, the amendment adds a de minimis waiver procedure that would allow the city to waive the CDP requirement for upgrades to onsite wastewater treatment systems, and for minor access road improvements required by the fire department for structures damaged or destroyed.

Last, removal of native trees that were fatally damaged or destroyed by a natural disaster may be exempt from the native tree protection policies of the LCP.
