The world’s largest active urban oil field is a constant issue for all the people who live near it, Culver City included. The deadline for public comments will close on August 15, 2023; the county will offer a public hearing the next day.
The Los Angeles County portion of the Inglewood Oil Field (IOF), which lies adjacent and easterly of the City of Culver City, is regulated by the Baldwin Hills Community Standards District (BHCSD). The LA County Regional Planning Commission will conduct a public hearing to consider amendments to the BHCSD. LA County is proposing to amend Title 22 of the LA County Code to prohibit new oil wells and allow existing oil wells to continue operating under a nonconforming status in the BHCSD. LA County will conduct a public hearing at which a presentation and overview of the proposed BHCD Amendment will be given and any interested person or authorized agent may appear and comment on the project. Should you attend, you will have an opportunity to testify, or you can submit written comments to the LA County planner indicated below.
