Malibu Honored With Senator’s First Sustainable City Award

The City of Malibu is the first recipient of Senator Fran Pavley’s new Sustainable City Award, in recognition of its policies and practices which protect and preserve the environment.

“The Sustainable City Award helps define Malibu’s leadership role in creating a cleaner environment for our nearly 13,000 residents and 15 million visitors who explore Malibu’s mountains and shores annually,†Malibu Mayor Laura Rosenthal said. “We thank Senator Pavley for recognizing the City of Malibu’s significant achievements in protecting and improving the environment, and for selecting the City as the first recipient of this prestigious award.â€

The City’s commitment to environmental stewardship is illustrated through the recent implementation of numerous projects, policies and practices that improve water quality, increase energy efficiency and reduce pollution.

The award-winning 15-acre Legacy Park, the focal point of the City’s more than $50 million pledge to improve ocean water quality, improves water quality by capturing, filtering, and treating stormwater runoff to remove bacteria, nutrients, and other pollutants. It saves potable water by using the treated stormwater for irrigation.

The City’s ongoing commitment to improve ocean water quality is also evident through its Clean Bay Restaurant Certification Program, which recognizes restaurants that exceed local stormwater regulations to reduce water pollution. This year, about 80% of all restaurants and food service businesses in Malibu are certified.

To improve energy efficiency, the City has adopted higher building Energy Efficiency Standards than required by the California Building Codes, and offers three new free access electric vehicle charging stations in the heart of its Civic Center to encourage use of alternative energy sources. Malibu has led by example through earning LEED certification for its newly opened City Hall and for its newly renovated Malibu Public Library, which will reopen in April 2012.
