The city of Malibu is working to alleviate concerns from the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy over the use of a Malibu parking lot for a temporary skate park.
The temporary skate park is expected to be built in the northern corner of the parking lot at , and will take up 41 of 75 existing parking spaces, according to a city commission report.
Malibu Planning Director Joyce Parker-Bozylinski said previously the SMMC has concerns over the use of the parking lot and a shared parking agreement. A trail-head is nearby.
The Malibu Planning Commission is set to vote on the project at its June 19 meeting.
Some 1 1/2 acres of vacant land north of the park along Winter Mesa Road will be converted into a temporary parking lot with 110 parking spaces.
Except for major holidays, the skate park is expected to be open to the public on a daily basis.
Papa Jack's Skate Park was closed when developer Steve Soboroff did not renew the lease with the park in 2010 because of plans to build a shopping center that will include a Whole Foods grocery store. Soboroff has since donated $25,000 to help move the park elsewhere.
