Malibu, California Statistic: Population, Charts, Map, Steets and More

The population of Malibu City, California is 12,877 people. The city is a beach community in Southern California and is surrounded by other upscale communities. The town's soaring residential development is pushing the city's boundaries farther into the Santa Monica Mountains, creating sprawling compounds that stretch deep into the canyons. Because of this, the region is vulnerable to massive wildfires, which threaten the town's secluded ambiance.

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, Malibu has a minority population of 12.0%, making it the third most Hispanic city in the greater Malibu region. The city's sex makeup is also balanced, with an equal number of males and females living in the city.

The city has a Mediterranean climate and is home to many celebrities. Its population is estimated to increase to 11,519 by 2020. Currently, the majority of residents live within a few hundred yards of the Pacific Coast Highway. However, some of them live a mile or more from the beach.

The city was first incorporated in 1991. After the founding of the city, residents fought against many proposed county developments such as an offshore freeway, nuclear power plant, and plans to replace septic tanks with sewer lines. The town also opposed plans to install a regional sewer, which would have served 400,000 people in the western Santa Monica Mountains.
