The recovery of Malibu’s retail community speaks to the collaborative effort of a large network of agencies, outreach from businesses and volunteers, fundraising endeavors, and the efficiency with which roads and communications are being repaired. During the fire, now 100 percent contained, the tight-knit community mounted an intensive community effort to help both those in personal need and the business community.
