The Real Malibu 411

 

Dear Editor,

The following links make clear the needed community support and acceptance for the Malibu Lagoon Restoration and Enhancement Plan. We thank State Parks and the agencies involved and look forward to the lagoon finally being cleaned and returned to a [natural] wetland habitat.

The Chumash Elders have voiced their support for the project (seen in the first link) and have also written a personal letter that has been posted on Malibu Patch. We have fostered relationships with the scientists, engineers and historians who worked so hard to finally put this project into action.

The opponents have had their voices heard, and it is about time that the media offers fair reporting and provides the opinions of those of us who know this Restoration is a much needed project.

We at The Real Malibu 411 are a grass roots local Malibu movement and have always agreed that leaky septics that pollute the creeks and ocean must be removed. We also believe that a sewer in the Civic Center is another “pill that Malibu needs to swallow,” according to Chumash Elder Dominguez.

Please feel to contact me at any time.

— Sincerely,

Stephenie Glas
