Here we go again guys! Who can make this meeting?
Need all the Malibu guys to come out for the City Council Meeting next week. Up to this point, the city council has not chosen a standpoint. They have not supported a map. They may change that on Monday at the meeting. Workgroup 3 and 1 maps are basically the same for Malibu: they both suck. Workgroup 2 is the only acceptable map. We need to show up at this meeting and show some support. Malibu is the city council most likely to pull a Laguna (although they are better informed than Laguna was). We need to bring facts to show them why workgroup 2's map is the best option.
Here is the proposed Item:
"RECOMMENDED ACTION: Review the Marine Life Protection Act (MLPA) Science
Advisory Team's recommendations regarding Marine Protected Areas (MPA) in the
South Coast Study Region, which includes Malibu coastal waters, and authorize the
Mayor to write a letter of support for the recommendations or determine an alternative
recommendation to be submitted for consideration by the MLPA Blue Ribbon Task Force
at its meetings on October 20-22, 2009.
FISCAL IMPACT: None.
DISCUSSION: On October 6, 2009, the MLPA Science Advisory Team is scheduled to
submit its recommendations regarding the implementation of the MLPA in the South
Coast Study Region. The team will address from a scientific perspective the feasibility of
establishing MPAs in the Region, which includes Malibu coastal waters.
If, after reviewing the recommendations of the Science Advisory Team, the Council
agrees with the team's findings, the Mayor can submit a letter of support for those
recommendations to the Blue Ribbon Task Force.
If the Council does not agree with the recommendations of the Science Advisory Team,
it should develop an alternative recommendation to be submitted to the Blue Ribbon
Task Force for consideration."
Basically, the city council will review the SAT's guidance provided at their recent meeting and provide their own recommendation to the BRTF based on what they think of the SAT's guidance. They have been waiting until the final SAT release to make a decision, so now is the time that they will pick a map to stand behind. Lets be at the meeting so we can be a part of the discussion. Otherwise it will be 1-sided and will turn into Laguna.
Send Emails/Call the city council this week, and tell them to support Map 2.
