Expected to begin this fall, Malibu’s Broad Beach nourishment project has been delayed for at least another year, according to a report published in the Ventura County Star. Project proponents failed to conduct sampling tests on the beach this past spring, which were required under the permit issued by the California Coastal Commission.
Broad Beach GHAD and the City of Moorpark were served with a lawsuit over the transport of sand for the restoration project through Fillmore and Ventura roads by the County of Ventura and City of Fillmore in April. Both parties have agreed to attempt a resolve in court-ordered mediation before their Nov. 17 trial.
