BALDWIN HILLS OIL DRILLING MORATORIUM, EIR, AND CSD

NEWSLETTER SPRING 2007

In response to community concerns, the County Board of Supervisors imposed a moratorium on new oil drilling in Baldwin Hills while the County prepares an Environmental Impact Report and Community Standards District. The City Project is working with Community Health Councils, the Baldwin Hills Conservancy, Assembly Majority Leader Karen Bass, and Senator Mark Ridley Thomas to engage, educate, and empower the community to understand the impact of oil drilling on human health, the Baldwin Hills Park, and the quality of life in the region.
