On Monday … the Malibu city council will accept the deeds for 3 commercial lots … purchased for $42.5 million.

The chili cook off site near City Hall … the triangle property at the corner of Pacific Coast Highway at web way … and the point doom vacant lot used for Christmas tree sales by Malibu high schools Athletic boosters Will become city property on Monday.

The city has gone into debt to buy the land … but the purchase takes several commercial properties off the market.
