The latest battle between the MRCA and Malibu residents is over a Porta potty on winding way.
The M R C A … the Mountain Resource Conservation Authority … wants to build a permanent portable toilet surrounded by a six foot fence … on a private street near Ramirez Canyon.
Residents are furious about this.
The MRCA says the toilet request is a response two complaints from residents … about hikers urinating on their private Street.
The M R C A has been in a decades long fight with the people who own the street that leads to the Ramirez Canyon tail head.
There’s a public toilet down on PCH … the new porta potty style toilet would be one mile up what the city describes to be a private street.
The portable toilet … 8 feet talll … surrounded by a 6-foot security fence … was originally proposed by the M R C A to be placed in the street itself.
Too ugly … said neighbors.
And the city staff worried that a car would hit it … as the street is narrow ad curved and there are no street lights.
The M R C A moved it a little bit off the street and down the hill …
Still too ugly … says the neighbors.
Neighbors continue to have concerns that the toilet is still visible from Winding Way, and would like for the toilet to be shifted further down the hill slope to reduce the toilet’s visibility from the road.
It’s another Zoom conference … to consider building projects still moving thru the regulatory pipeline.
Tonight at 6:30 … on your computers.
