The Harbor Gateway North Neighborhood Council is was the first of nine Neighborhood Councils to have voted support for Council File 13-1152-S1 which placed a moratorium on hydraulic fracturing (“fracking”) and other well stimulation activities within City boundaries.  The 10-0 City Council vote on February 28, 2014 gave the City of Los Angeles the honor of being the largest city in the country to pass such a moratorium.  The Department of City Planning and the City Attorney are now working on zoning ordinance language which would regulate “fracking” and other oil production methods in such a way as to safeguard the health of residents.  Los Angeles has 1,880 active wells and 2,932 closed wells.  A large number of closed wells and some active wells are to be found within the Harbor Gateway North boundaries, particularly north of Rosecrans and south of 120th Street between Vermont Avenue and Figueroa Street.  More details about these active and closed wells can be found by viewing the State of California’s Division of Oil, Gas, and Geothermal Resources (DOGGR) well finder link: http://www.conservation.ca.gov/dog/Pages/Wellfinder.aspx
