The grass is greener

bluffs park

If your first thought upon seeing this swath of land on a bluff above the Pacific is "Hey! Let's turn it into a bunch of ball parks!" then a few on the local City Council want to hear from you. And if the idea of turning the sole remaining undeveloped bit of coastal open space in the city into yet another human habitat seems, well, criminal, then you've also got company.

Lots of news stories from both sides of the equation (hyper-local papers only, no LA Times or national outlets yet) are here.

It's quite the brouhaha, with a proposed land swap between the city of Malibu and the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy (Malibu's Charmlee Park in exchange for the SMMC's Bluffs Park) and, in the process of cutting that deal, the city being accused of violating the Brown Act.

This thing isn't going away anytime soon.
