Document Description
Note: 60 Day Review The Project proposes to create a sports-oriented educational retreat affiliated with the University of Southern CA to complement a remodeled 18-hole golf course on a 650-acre property currently operated as the Malibu Golf Club in the unincorporated Malibu area of Los Angeles County. In total, the Project proposes to construct a combined 224,760 sf of structures, which would include the reuse of the building footprint of the existing 12,475 sf clubhouse and cart barn as part of the Institute building and the removal of 11,160 sf of existing structures (including the abandoned residence in the northern portion of the Project site), for a total increase of 201,225 sf of structures on the Project site. An existing 875-sf house located on the northern portion of the property would be retained by the proposed Project for use as a caretakers' residence. The reconfigured 18-hole golf course would be redesigned using the acreage of 17 of the existing holes on the golf course, allowing the proposed facilities, including the redesigned golf course, to be constructed within previously disturbed areas. The Project would conserve over 450 acres of native coastal scrub and chaparral, including oak woodland forest, which would be left undisturbed and would become permanently dedicated open space.
