Meetings are the first Thursday of the month
NANDC was instrumental in shining a light on issues surrounding the Freeport McMoRan Drilling Proposal. With NANDC joining in the outreach effort and several board members attending the meeting, attendees voiced their concern about the effects of chemicals, while Freeport McMoRan insisted the drilling was the same thing they have been doing since 1965. A public hearing on this subject in January attracted the attention of City Council President Herb Wesson, State Senator Holly Mitchell, and Congresswoman Karen Bass. With the large outcry of concern regarding potential toxic chemicals, the hearing caused a delay in a decision on the drilling proposal. Associate zoning administrator May Zaitzevsky said she would accept information and public comment on the proposal until early January.
Concerned residents may send their comments to be received by January 5 to JoJo Pewsawang, (213) 978-1214, JoJo.Pewsawang@lacity.org.
