Letter: For formula ordinance

In California alone: Ojai, San Francisco, Sausalito, Sonoma, Benicia, Arcata, San Juan Bautista, Pacific Grove, Coronado, Calistoga, Solvang, Carmel, with more coming, all have highly successful, effective and fully legal formula ordinances as law in their cities.

Upheld in court, a formula ordinance is legal and constitutional in California. Malibu can’t allow loud chest pounding with fictitious claims by a handful of developers, who fear that Malibu might actually grow a backbone, to stand in the way of following our own General Plan. Their mall-mentality is burying Malibu, destroying the rare character of this incredible town. We all know it, we all see it and we’ve had it!

Residents, if you want a truthful count of percent of retail chains in each Cross Creek mall —just go count them yourselves. Irrefutable! Solid facts at our city, on record, have confirmed the need for this ordinance for more than two years. There’s a good reason this ordinance has moved forward at our city. Bullying is not tolerated in schoolyards; it must never be allowed to dictate our city laws.

Malibu is long overdue for this formula ordinance to be implemented on our books. City Hall, make this ordinance right and get it done now!
