April 9, 2017: LA Times Reports 4th Ave Drill Site could be turned into affordable housing

The LA Times reported that Council President Wesson said "a new operator [of the 4th Ave, Murphy, and Jefferson Drill sites], Sentinel Peak Resources [SPR], has been talking with his office about closing the [4th Ave] site and cleaning it up. No official plan has been drafted and details are scant, but Wesson said he was “unbelievably excited” about the idea, arguing it could pave the way to convert other local drilling sites."  The LA Times also reported that Council President H. Wesson "said he would not move forward with any project that placed residents at risk.

The LA Times report of SPR's intent with the 4th Ave. Drill Site is counter to SPR's official correspondence to the Planning Department earlier this year (see below)!
