Developers Fight Malibu Measure with Federal Lawsuit | Los Angeles Business Journal

This goes a bit farther than our Formula Based Business Bylaw.  The development approval by voter fiat is a bit questionable.  Turning every proposal into a referendum does not provide a clear concise development plan for a community. 

As to the chain store limits, we have been told a bylaw cannot favor local business over chain businesses.  This Malibu Ordinance clearly does that.

It will be interesting to see how this plays out.
