Oil Wells

The establishment of the Baldwin Hills CSD was subject to the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). Initial outreach and scoping meeting began in 2007. An Environmental Impact Report (EIR) was completed in 2008. On October 8, 2008, after considering testimony and material presented, the County Regional Planning Commission closed the public hearing and recommended approval of the Baldwin Hills CSD and certification of the Final Environmental Impact Report (FEIR) to the County Board of Supervisors. On October 28, 2008, after considering additional public comments and testimony heard at the public hearing held on October 21, 2008, the County Board of Supervisors adopted the Baldwin Hills CSD to establish additional regulations for oil and gas production activities in the unincorporated portion of the Inglewood Oil Field located in the Baldwin Hills area.

What is an Area Plan?

The General Plan serves as the foundation for all more local plans, such as Area Plans, Community Plans, and Coastal Land Use Plans.

The Westside Area Plan is one of 11 area plans is being prepared or updated for each of the County’s Planning Areas and will provide opportunities to update local planning tools such as community plans, specific plans and community standards districts which involve changes to zoning and land use.

Area Plans address the same issues as the General Plan, adding greater specificity to the local context.
