County Supervisors cancel agenda item on Public’s Right to Appeal Oil Drilling Permits

UPDATE on Board of Supervisor’s 4/10/18 agenda item #43: Administrative Appeals for certain Zoning Clearances…

After careful consideration, Supervisor Foy and I have decided to pull item #43 from tomorrow’s agenda which requests changes to our Administrative Appeals for certain Zoning Clearances. We plan to evaluate some new information provided by staff to refine the policy and bring this item back for discussion at a later meeting.

It was never our intention to introduce this item as a means to by-pass the public process on projects like the request for 79 oil wells on a legacy permit. We do however remain resolute in finding a way to improve the current progression of appeals that provides a fair and predictable outcome while maintaining enough oversight and review of projects with potentially significant environmental impacts.

An inclusive, collaborative approach to issues helps ensure we can strike the right balance and craft good public policy that benefits all of the citizens of Ventura County. An interested and engaged public serves the greater good and I thank you all for your feedback in this process.
