Screw these people. Whittier Blvd. is a disaster with no car dealerships. What do they want ? Higher property taxes? Three to 11 trucks a day is not excessive. Three million a year is a great windfall for Whittier. Do your part you lefties and quit whining.
Drill here and drill now!

Three million per year is chicken scratch when you have a city with a budget over 100 million per year. Complete the equation, Matrix must net at least 10 million per year AFTER mitigation of the EIR.
Matrix must first drill and test the wells and then evaluate the economic viability of the project. And that's the proposal on the table. The EIR will establish the mitigation measures needed to operate in the Prop A Open Space AND mitigation of the impacts to the adjacent neighborhood. If the oil proves viable then Matrix will construct a facilty and pipeline capable of producing 10,000 barrels per day.
There is a temporary need, 6-9 months, for large trucks to access the site and then oil will be piped out and the need for large tanker trucks will not be required.
Be patient pokerbum, nice bluff.

I am sure if they wanted to do this in any other part of Whittier any request to not have this done would be denied.

This is pathetic. The Catalina entrance is off Mar Vista. The traffic already on this street is unbearable. Adding trucks to the mix, (over the three ton limit no doubt), would just destroy the neighborhood. The city Council should be ashamed of themselves.
