About the City

The City of Malibu, a community of approximately 13,000, is located in the northwest corner of Los Angeles County. Encompassing approximately 21 square miles, Malibu consists primarily of residential development. It is bordered by the Santa Monica Mountains to the north and the Pacific Ocean to the south, providing a pleasant, mild climate year-round. Incorporated in 1991, Malibu is a general law city with a Council-Manager form of government. The City has an annual operating budget of $30.2 million and employs a staff of 91 full-time equivalent positions providing Management and Administration, Planning, Building Safety and Environmental Services, Public Works and Community Services. The City contracts for fire, law enforcement, utilities, plan checking, traffic engineering and street maintenance services.

About the Position

The Planning Director is part of the City Manager’s leadership team and works closely with all other department heads under the administrative and policy direction of the City Manager. The City of Malibu is a unique coastal environment with a well-informed, highly engaged community. The community places a high priority on thoughtful planning. Challenges include balancing protection of the rural character and natural resources treasured by the community and the pressures of being a very popular visitor destination with large amounts of public open space under multi-agency control.

The Planning Director oversees and coordinates a complex development review (current planning) process involving local zoning and the City’s certified Local Coastal Program, as well as long range planning and ensuring compliance with state and federal mandates and annual Council work plan goals. As the City is still recovering from the Woolsey Fire of November 2018 which destroyed 450 homes, the position is also responsible for ensuring an effective, streamlined review process for fire rebuild projects. The Planning Director organizes and reviews the work of staff performing difficult and complex professional, technical and office support tasks related to all functions of the Planning Department.The position can include serving as project manager for complex development applications; administering complex and sensitive activities in such areas as zoning, housing and advanced planning; providing professional assistance to the City Manager, the City Council, the Planning Commission and others in areas of expertise; overseeing, reviewing, and performing a variety of studies and preparing and presenting reports to Council, Planning Commission and other agencies and organizations.The Planning Director also oversees the City’s code enforcement program with a focus on responsiveness, communication, voluntary compliance, and results.
