Cedillo Pushes to Terminate Inactive Oil Districts in CD1

Los Angeles—Councilmember Gil Cedillo introduced a motion today calling for the identification and evaluation of urban oil districts in Council District 1, further instructing the City to determine the necessary steps to terminate inactive oil drilling districts.

“This motion aims to align land use in our district with the current needs of our community,” stated Councilmember Cedillo. “Times have changed and the primary concern for the communities I represent is that they live in a healthy and environmentally just neighborhood. This includes communities that are free of potentially harmful oil emissions or the potential for an oil leak. We are fighting to ensure our residents all over the district have the same quality of life,” added Councilmember Cedillo.

Councilmember Gil Cedillo currently represents the 1st Council District, which includes all or parts of the neighborhoods of Glassell Park, Cypress Park, Highland Park, Mt. Washington, Solano Canyon, Sycamore Grove, Elysian Park, Echo Park, Westlake, Angelino Heights, Temple Beaudry, Lafayette Park, Chinatown, Forgotten Edge, Lincoln Heights, Montecito Heights, Pico Union, Adams-Normandie, University Park, Mid Cities and Mac Arthur Park.
