Proposed Oil & Gas Drilling Ordinance Presentation & Public Hearing
August 30 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm
On August 9, 2022, Los Angeles City Planning released a draft of the proposed Oil and Gas Drilling Ordinance (Oil Ordinance), with a goal of having this ordinance considered by the City Planning Commission in the fall of 2022. This month, City Planning will hold a virtual presentation, Q&A, and public hearing on the proposed ordinance. This is your opportunity to learn more about the proposed regulations and submit a public comment.
In response to City Council File No. 17-0447, the proposed Oil Ordinance would amend the Los Angeles Municipal Code to prohibit all new oil and gas drilling activities and make any existing extraction a nonconforming use in all zones of the City. The proposed Oil Ordinance would phase out these oil drilling activities, which are known hazards to public health and safety, by immediately banning new oil and gas extraction and requiring the removal of existing operations after an amortization period.
The draft ordinance, fact sheet, and more information can be found on the project webpage at planning.lacity.org/oil-and-gas-drilling-ordinance.
