The Las Virgenes-Malibu Council of Governments (COG) Governing Board provided an update on Camp Kilpatrick, the Los Angeles County Juvenile Rehabilitative Service facility, and provided an update to staff on the Camp Kilpatrick action plan.

From the last LVMCOG meeting on March 15, President Karen Farrer stated the Los Angeles County Juvenile Detention Facility Campus Kilpatrick item and urged the Governing Board to oppose the relocation of juveniles to Camp Kilpatrick, located in the Santa Monica Mountains between Malibu, Westlake Village and Agoura Hills. Farrer made a motion to send a letter in opposition to the LA County Board of Supervisors; her motion did not pass. The LVMCOG did let the supervisors know of its opposition.

Farrer and other Malibu residents opposed to the new Kilpatrick plan have questioned the design and preparation for the camp to house serious offenders. Camp Kilpatrick saw a $53 million renovation in 2017, however it was not designed as what is identified as a serious youth track facility.

Kuehl stated in a letter that the number of people added will not exceed more than a few dozen. Kilpatrick’s new residents will start arriving May 1.
