E&B Natural Resources Management Corp., the California-based oil and natural gas company that has elected to try to drill for oil off the shores of Hermosa Beach, filed their project application for the enterprise with the city today.
The filing of the project application allows the city to move forward as the lead agency for the environmental review of the proposed project.
The city will review the project application and request any additional information needed to begin the Environmental Impact Report (EIR) process required by the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA).
Hermosa voters, in a future election whose date has yet to be determined, will be allowed to cast votes as to whether or not E&B gets to move forward to construct and operate an onshore oil and natural gas resource recovery facility from a city maintenance yard at 6th Street and Valley Drive.
Here are ways Hermosans can learn about the project:
