Oil Well Ordinance

Project No 2020-000246-(1-5)
Case No RPPL2020000624

In response to the September 15, 2021 motion by the LA County Board of Supervisors (Board), LA County Planning prepared an ordinance to amend Title 22 – Planning and Zoning of the Los Angeles County Code. For the unincorporated areas of LA County, the proposed ordinance prohibits new oil wells and production facilities in all zones, designates existing oil wells and production facilities as nonconforming uses in all zones, and establishes regulations for existing oil wells and production facilities. The proposed ordinance does not apply to the Baldwin Hills Community Standards District, specific plans, nor uses operating under a valid discretionary permit. LA County Planning will address these in future efforts.
