The Malibu Parks and Recreation Commission is scheduled Tuesday to hear more about the proposed Esplanade Project, a plan that includes a viewing platform at Surfrider Beach.
The meeting is set for 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 19 in the community room at Malibu City Hall.
The Malibu Parks and Recreation Commission is currently reviewing the first phase of the project, which only includes the viewing platform at Surfrider Beach. The viewing platform would be located between the Malibu Pier and the Adamson House.
Commissioners are expected to make a recommendation to the Malibu City Council on whether to proceed with the project.
Ann Ryan, the designer behind the project, is expected to answer questions about the project at Tuesdays meeting.
Ryan met in January with members of the Malibu Parks and Recreation Commission, which formed a subcommittee made up of Commissioners Carl Randall, Graeme Clifford and Steve Parks to gather facts about the project.
Officials from the state of California, Los Angeles County and Caltrans would have to be on board for the project to move forward.
The project was proposed by Ryan in the 1980s when her nonprofit received grants from the California Coastal Conservancy, California Department of Parks and Los Angeles County.
More recently, Ryan made several attempts to solicit grant funds from the city in 2010 and 2011, but none of the requests were funded.
