The last council meeting’s discussion topics of home office laws and permits for grandfathered buildings appear to be two different issues, but they have something in common. These regulations affect us in our most private sanctuaries-our homes. The council’s recent interest in looking at these issues represents a new direction in tackling something other than Committees, Development Agreements, Budgeting and Procedures.
With real sincerity, the councilmembers grappled with our right to conduct business in our homes and the need to make permitting affordable. I applaud them and believe that the prospects stopping the over-regulation of Malibu are improving.
