#Enviro Justice In Oxnard -
Project Status: Public Appeal Hearing before the Ventura County Planning Commission: 8:30am, Thursday September 7, 2017 - RSVP HERE.
CFROG is partnered with Food & Water Watch in our appeal of an oil and gas project at Etting & Dodge Roads in Oxnard.
On April 13, 2017 partners CFROG and Food & Water Watch appealed a project approved by the Ventura County Planning Director that adds more oil and gas wells to a location without studying how an increase in truck traffic, emissions from more oil wells and other factors will impact residents, students at local schools, and farm workers in the area.
#VC Needs Green General Plan -
CFROG is working to ensure Ventura County creates and approves a green, healthy and forward thinking General Plan that will govern all land use decisions in the county until 2040. Details coming soon.
The fact is there are impacts from the existing and expanding oil and gas activity in Ventura County. Impacts to public health, the environment and our water. CFROG has taken action and is mobilizing to participate in the Ventura County General Plan Update process over the next four years. The GenPlan document governs all land use decisions until 2040.
We see oil and gas activity expanding - more wells are approved every year. That means more trucks, more pipelines - more potential for spills and leaks.
#Enforcing CEQA in VC -
CFROG is ensuring that when Ventura County approves an oil and gas project it is complying with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) - including parts of the law that require impacts to endangered species be studied and considered.
CFROG digs into project applications, historic land use permit documents to find errors, violations, inconsistencies and gaps in oversight. When appropriate we submit comments, file appeals and ultimately may take legal action.
