In November of 2014 voters in Malibu, California passed Measure R which put limits on the amount of space available to chain stores and required voters to approve other commercial developments. This measure was challenged recently by several major national retail developers including Whole Foods. As a result, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge James Chalfant handed down a ruling that essentially says that the
requirement to place any commercial project of more than 20,000 square feet before voters illegally usurped the city’s proper administrative land use role.
This will allow the face of Malibu to change. As a commercial and retail building inspector that works in all areas of Los Angeles, we expect to see the fight over the changing look and experience of the area to continue for years.
