Local Coastal Plan

August 10, 1985
An article (Editorial Pages, July 23) by state Sen. Gary Hart (D-Santa Barbara) accused Los Angeles County of dragging its feet in coming forward with a strong local coastal plan for Malibu. Nothing could be further from the truth. As a supporter of the California Coastal Protection Initiative offered to the voters in 1972, I have watched with great interest the progress being made by counties and municipalities in developing local coastal plans that should leave a positive legacy for our future generations.

So Santa Barbara's insistence on slow growth is resulting in some negative effects, such as air pollution, traffic congestion and soaring housing costs (March 6). It should just take the brakes off development altogether, like Los Angeles did. We don't have any of those problems here. DAVID M. MARQUEZ Los Angeles I am dismayed that there is not a single mention in this article about a local coastal plan. Negotiated between the California Coastal Commission and local municipalities, such a plan spells out in detail appropriate future development within a coastal zone.

A proposal to build a $1-billion mini-city at the site of the old Pike Amusement Park won the enthusiastic backing Tuesday of the Long Beach City Council, which voted to amend the local coastal plan to clear the way for the project. The plans to construct an 11-building, mixed-use project that would eventually employ 8,000 people must still go before the state Coastal Commission and be reviewed in detail by Long Beach. The project, a venture of the Ratkovich Co. and Enterprise Development West, would be built over a 13-year period, with ground-breaking scheduled for 1990.

The California Coastal Commission on Thursday moved to dump "Malibu Days," the daylong sessions when state officials in charge of the entire 1,100-mile coastline get bogged down in home remodels, deck expansions and other projects of Malibu's wealthy residents.

Planning for Venice, a controversial issue that long has been relegated to the back burner at City Hall, finally has made it to the front of the stove. Los Angeles City Councilwoman Ruth Galanter has announced that she will begin public hearings soon on a local coastal plan that would establish legally binding development guidelines for the small beach community.

The California Coastal Commission will be briefed by its staff today on a revised proposal for Malibu's local coastal plan, a blueprint for future development along the 27-mile shoreline and five miles inland to the heart of the Santa Monica Mountains. Commission and county negotiators are trying to reach agreement on the plan, which would give the local government full authority over construction in Malibu. Currently, the Coastal Commission has the final say.

The Redondo Beach City Council has unanimously passed two resolutions that redefine methods for calculating allowable density in the so-called medium-density residential land use districts. These districts consist of coastal land areas west of Pacific Coast Highway, and were developed originally for the purpose of reducing density and traffic.

A judge has ruled that the controversial Binion housing development violates environmental and coastal view laws, a decision foes of the project hailed Saturday as a major victory. Orange County Superior Court Judge William F. McDonald ruled that the 22-home Laguna Niguel project proposed by Las Vegas casino owner Jack Binion is not set within proper boundaries, which violates the city's coastal plan.

The news article by Times reporter Michele Norris reporting on the California Coastal Commission's rejection of the local coastal plan covering the property at the west end of the airport runways and owned by the Los Angeles International Airport was grossly misleading. She alleges that this plan would destroy the breeding ground of an endangered butterfly and a host of other unidentified species. This article did not make it clear that the breeding ground of the El Segundo Blue endangered butterfly would be totally protected by the plan recommended by the City Council of Los Angeles (the local coastal plan adopted by the City Council and recommended by the city Planning Commission and the Airport Commission in order to determine precisely what should be be protected)

Seeking a major shift in the way California has been protecting its coastline, Gov. Pete Wilson plans to insist next week that cities and counties--particularly Los Angeles--assume more responsibility for coastal development. Wilson administration officials said Monday--in a preview of upcoming policy announcements--that dozens of local governments are violating the 1976 Coastal Act by not providing plans for beach area development.

I have been a resident of Port Hueneme for 10 years. My condominium overlooks Hueneme Beach and adjoining Ormond Beach. Over the years, I gradually saw the beaches flooded with all-terrain vehicles and the wildlife disappeared. My neighbors and I led a movement to have Oxnard ban the vehicles from its beach and join Port Hueneme in policing the areas. Once again, the wildlife began to return and this past year was spectacular. We were visited by three sizes of egret and heron of various types.

California Coastal Commission lawyers have tentatively agreed to drop a lawsuit that challenges Los Angeles County's creation of a sewer district in Malibu, clearing the way for the sale of $34 million in sewer bonds at normal market rates rather than as high-risk certificates, county officials say. Dismissal of the state lawsuit will enable the county to sell bonds that pay about 9% interest instead of 12%. That will save Malibu property owners,...

I am writing to thank the many citizens of the Sixth District and surrounding areas who have supported my efforts to begin the badly needed and long overdue coastal planning process in Venice. Thanks to those efforts, the Coastal Interim Control ordinance is now law and Venice can focus its attention on drafting a Local Coastal Plan. The urgent need for an ICO and LCP has been demonstrated quite clearly by the onslaught of permit applications and zone change/plan amendment applications which exceeded the limits of the Coastal Commission guidelines over the past few years.

More than 100 Venice residents, merchants, artisans and street performers met last week to discuss use of the beach and the boardwalk. The meeting, one in a series of public hearings required to draw up a Local Coastal Plan for Venice, focused on landscaping at the beach, the street performers and the crowds they draw, and open-air vending.
