MALIBU—The city of Malibu is asking residents of the coastal community to provide input on a recently acquired parcel of land known as the Trancas Field Property. According to the city of Malibu’s official website, the property “encompasses approximately 35 acres of undeveloped space located on Trancas Canyon Road and Pacific Coast Hwy (PCH).” Malibu government officials purchased the land on August 8 and will acquire the property this month.

A Parks and Recreation Commission has developed a plan for community discussion regarding the best use of the Trancas Field Property. The discussion will include a series of workshops and focus groups for the public throughout the month of November. The city has an online questionnaire for residents of Malibu to complete which details possible outcomes for the property.

Once the data from the workshops, focus groups, and online questionnaires have been collected and analyzed, alongside data from the Parks and Recreation Department Master Needs Assessment, a decision regarding the property’s best use will be announced to the public.

“All of the methods are being used to ensure active public participation in addressing priorities, issues, and concerns associated with the project,” states the city of Malibu website.
