Document Description
The proposed project consists of the adoption of the Citywide View Restoration Ordinance, establishing a private right of action for property owners in the City of Malibu to restore pre-existing views from private residences that have been significantly obstructed by landscaping on neighboring properties. The proposed ordinance reflects the City's goal to restore pre-existing views while considering privacy, safety and stability of hillsides, natural and rural setting of the City, and acknowledging the importance of trees and foliage. Foliage that meets the definition of Environmentally Sensitive Habitat Areas or Native Trees is exempt from restorative actions. The proposed ordinance establishes a process by which property owners within the City may seek to restore a pre-existing view with emphasis on neighbors resolving issues prior to court action.
