The Culver City Oil Drilling Subcommittee to Host Informational Meeting
The public review period on the Inglewood Oil Field Draft EIR and Draft Specific Plan ends on March 14. In preparation for that date, the Culver City Oil Drilling Subcommittee is holding an informational community meeting to address the review process. The meeting will be held this Wednesday, February 21.
The Inglewood Oil Field (IOF) is located in Los Angels County and impacts a small portion of the Culver City Real Estate area. Martin Feinberg, Culver City Realtor previously addressed the topic in October when the community hosted its first informational meeting on IOF and again when local residents requested a review period extension.
Per the Culver City Oil Drilling Subcommittee website, the goal of this meeting is to “clarify how oil-related activities would be affected if the Draft Specific Plan were to be approved, present an overview of the Draft Specific Plan and Drilling Regulations, and facilitate the public’s understanding of the document, thereby allowing for focused public comments on the Draft EIR.”
The Subcommittee also notes that the February 21 meeting is not a public hearing. “Questions may be addressed, but no oral public testimony or comments will be taken. All comments on the Draft EIR must be submitted in writing. “
The meeting will take place at the Veterans Memorial Complex Rotunda Room at 4117 Overland Ave. from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
The EIR draft documents are posted on Culver City’s website for review at www.culvercity.org/inglewoodoilfield. Written comments must be received by the City on or before March 14 at 5:30 p.m. They should be labeled “Subject: Inglewood Oil Field Specific Plan Project” and should be emailed to IOFSpecificPlanProject@culvercity.org.
They can also be faxed to (310) 253-5664 or mailed to the City at City of Culver City, City Attorney’s Office, Attention: Heather Baker, Assistant City Attorney Subject: Inglewood Oil Field Specific Plan Project 9770 Culver Boulevard, Culver City, CA 90232.
Martin Feinberg, Realtor, encourages all interested citizens to stay involved with the Culver City Oil Drilling Subcommittee and make their voices heard.
