Subcommittee on Oil & Gas Reform


The city regulatory framework is antiquated, not transparent, and does not address modern oil production techniques. Current Los Angeles municipal code distributes ordinances and rulings among the city departments for Zoning, Public Safety, Public Works, and City Petroleum Officer in the CAO.   The UNNC Planning and Zoning sub-committee on Oil & Gas Reform will meet about the potential reform of the City of Los Angeles regulations for urban oil fields, including establishing contact with subject experts, oil drillers, the community and city officials. The committee will hold Brown Act compliant discussions with the public, but is not authorized to take any actions other than making recommendations to the Planning & Zoning committee.
