A heavy traffic jam this morning on Heathercliff at Dume Drive.

This may be a taste of things to come.

Lots of construction trucks … and lots of parents trying to get down to the Point Dume school … the soon to be called Malibu Elementary School. 

With the arrival of nearly 300 new kids this fall … traffic jams on the point are a major concern.

The Santa Monica-Malibu school district is trying to drum up interest in a school bus to go from Malibu West and Trancas … through malibu Park … over to the school on Point Dume.

Summer is here … the real traffic impact comes this fall. 


Want to know how much it would cost to underground the power lines at your house??

Try 53 hundred dollars a year.

A 20-year commitment.

That’s how much each property will have to pay this year along a small stretch of P C H … to put their power lines underground.

Back in 2007 … the Carbon Beach homeowners voted 21 to 8 to bury their power lines.

Every year … the city council has to approve the tax bill.

It’s been dropping over the years … as the city has re-financed the 5 million dollar project and received lower interest rates. 


Plans are lining up for this Saturday’s emergency preparedness fair … at Trancas Country Market. 

Fire preparedness and civilian fire prevention equipment vendors will be there. 

So will members of the Corral Canyon Fire Safety Alliance … who can tell you how they got trained … bought a fire truck .. and are now classified as on call firefighters. 

The Los Angeles County Fire and Sheriff’s Departments will be there.

It is sponsored by the City of Malibu Public Safety Commission … The Malibu Surfside News, The Malibu Times, The City of Malibu, The Malibu Dolphin Charitable Foundation/Operation Recovery, Trancas Country Market, KBUU 99.1 Radio, and the Malibu Chamber of Commerce and KBUU 99.1 FM,. T
