City Manager Harry Peacock’s remarks at last Monday’s council meeting were right on target. The Malibu Bay Company proposal does present a golden opportunity for our city to explore ways to provide land for recreation-related services in Malibu. It also seems to be essentially risk free, since the city has only agreed to study the matter within the framework of a development agreement with the Malibu Bay Company which they can either accept or reject in public, with public input and comment.
It seems to me that’s about as good as it gets in municipal government. I am pleased with Mr. Peacock’s assessment of the situation and pleased that the City Council has for now seen it his way.
