California, the seventh-biggest U.S. crude oil producer, has put a near halt on issuing permits for new drilling this year, according to state data.

The state's Geologic Energy Management Division, known as CalGEM, has approved seven new active well permits in 2023. That compares with the more than 200 it had issued by this time last year.

The stalled approvals represent the latest tension between California's bold environmental ambitions and its role as a major oil and gas producer and consumer.

New drilling permits have steadily declined since Gavin Newsom became governor in 2019, but the current rate of approval represents a sudden and dramatic drop.

"It's just fallen off the cliff," Rock Zierman, chief executive of the California Independent Petroleum Association (CIPA), said in an interview. The industry has more than 1,400 permit applications for new wells awaiting CalGEM approval, half of which are more than a year old, he said.

In an email, CalGEM attributed the smaller number of approvals to both the broader decline in California oil production and litigation that has paused permitting by Kern County, the center of the state's oil industry.

CalGEM is processing far more approvals to permanently close wells than for any other activity, the agency said.

"We expect this permitting trend to continue as California transitions away from fossil fuels," CalGEM said.

The approved new wells include one for Sentinel Peak Resources in San Luis Obispo County and five for E&B Natural Resources Management in Kern County.

In an apparent concession to the oil and gas industry, approvals to improve or repair established wells are up nearly 50% to 1,650 in the first half of this year, according to an analysis of the CalGEM data by environmental group FracTracker Alliance that was provided to Reuters by the consumer advocacy non-profit Consumer Watchdog.

Reworking existing wells to boost their production cannot replace volumes from new wells that are needed to meet California's energy needs, CIPA's Zierman said.

The governor wants to phase out oil drilling in the state by 2045.

California also passed a law last year banning oil and gas drilling within 3,200 feet of structures including homes, schools and hospitals. But CIPA has blocked implementation of that law by qualifying a referendum to overturn it for the November 2024 ballot.

Nearly half of the wells with rework permits approved this year are within the contested buffer zone.

Consumer Watchdog criticized those approvals as a threat to public health because they extend the lives of low- and non-producing wells, which the group argues would likely have been plugged had the setback law not been paused.

“The state is simply helping the oil industry cut costs by issuing permits to tinker with unproductive wells rather than making them plug and remediate those wells that endanger the public and environment by emitting toxic compounds," said Liza Tucker, a consumer advocate for Consumer Watchdog.

CalGEM said it is required to evaluate permits so long as the law is barred from being implemented.

In this LA neighborhood, nicknamed "Black Beverly Hills," success is common for African Americans

The Los Angeles hilltop neighborhoods of Baldwin Hills, Ladera Heights, Windsor Hills and View Park, make up one of the most affluent predominantly African-American enclaves in the nation, leading some to call it the "Black Beverly Hills." We explore this community and perceptions of Black success through the Burnett family.

BALDWIN HILLS, Calif. (KABC) -- Success is typical among the residents in the predominantly African-American neighborhoods of Baldwin Hills, Ladera Heights, Windsor Hills and View Park. Many of the homes are valued upwards of $2 million, and scores of Black celebrities, including Ray Charles and Tina Turner, have lived in the area, leading some to call it the "Black Beverly Hills."

But this label paints a distorted image of a community that's proud of its own history and identity.

"I'm pretty sure it wasn't somebody African American that labeled it," said Baldwin Hills resident Denise Burnett, a former school principal and rising director at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA. "Everyone here has worked very hard. They didn't have a silver spoon in their mouth. It wasn't given to them or inherited it. They worked very hard to be here."

Denise and her husband, Dr. Ted Burnett, a dentist who grew up in neighboring South Los Angeles, raised their daughter in the area.

"We always knew that there were more affluent Black people that lived in the Baldwin Hills area. So as kids we always wanted to be there," said Dr. Burnett.

According to local real estate agent Roland Harris, African Americans settled in the area because historically, they were not allowed to purchase homes in other affluent areas.

"It's just a really great community," said Harris. "During the late 60s and early 70s, African Americans, a lot of times people would not sell to them in affluent neighborhoods, even if they could afford it. A lot of successful African Americans chose this neighborhood because it's a very beautiful neighborhood, and they were allowed access."

Beloved Black Santa returns to Baldwin Hills Crenshaw mall after pandemic break

Smiles and laughs weren't hard to come by as several children at the Baldwin Hills Crenshaw mall came to see a Santa that looked just like them.

"We've been there with white Santa already so why not explain to him how our culture works and how Black Santa is great to our community and great for us," said parent Akiana Henderson.

Henderson and her best friend Ashley Johnson brought their sons to take a Christmas picture specifically with the Black Chris Kringle. For them and other parents, it's about diversity, representation and inclusion.

It's been a tradition at the South Los Angeles mall for several years and after a pandemic-era break, it is finally back in person.

"These kids need to understand Black culture, Black Santa" said Johnson. "It's not just white Santas. It's all cultures — that's big for me."

George Smithers started playing Santa 30 years ago to spread joy to his own children. He decided to spread that jolly holiday feeling to families at malls across the country for the last five years.

"Years ago, when my children were just young, we took them to see Santa," he said. "I didn't have a lot of choices and my oldest daughter began to cry."

He says there are less than a dozen other Black Santas that travel to shopping centers nationwide to give families of color the holiday experience their hearts desire.

"It's definitely something that folks from all across the United States are looking for and it needs to be more," said Smithers.

Parents agree and said while the community looks forward to having a Black mall Santa during the holidays his prevalence is needed in areas beyond predominately Black communities every Christmas season.

"I feel like he's here at Crenshaw mall because it's a more because it's a more Black-on-Black community," said Henderson. "It's probably hard to get him to go to Del Amo — or they want him at Del Amo. We need to get him around through."

Santa typically sees about 100 families on the weekends and more during the week leading up to Christmas. The last chance to catch him at the mall is Christmas Eve at 7 p.m.

636 apartments + retail planned at 4005 Crenshaw Boulevard in Baldwin Hills

Two years after completing its acquisition of the Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza, Harridge Development Group is taking its first steps toward redeveloping portions of the landmark shopping mall.

AC Martin

Yesterday, Harridge submitted an application to the Los Angeles Department of City Planning seeking entitlements for what is described as phase one of the Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza Project: a mixed-use complex at 4005 Crenshaw Boulevard. Plans call for the construction of a pair of eight-story, 89-foot-tall buildings featuring 636 studio, one-, and two-bedroom dwellings above approximately 58,000 square feet of ground-floor commercial space - most of which would be dedicated to a grocery store. Parking for just over 1,400 vehicles would be provided in subterranean and podium levels.

As required by the Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza's existing approvals, Harridge will be required to set aside 5 percent of the total apartments for households earning up to 60 percent of the area median income level and an additional 5 percent of dwellings for households earning up to 80 percent of AMI. That amounts to 64 total income-restricted units.

AC Martin

AC Martin is designing 4005 Crenshaw, with Border serving as landscape architect. Findings include with the project application describe the building as having a simple, modern style intended to complement existing surrounding structures.

More than 100,000 square feet of open space is included in the plan, taking the form of several landscaped courtyards within the new buildings, and a landscaped promenade along Crenshaw Boulevard adjacent to the development site.

Border

The proposed project would be the first components of a larger plan for the 42-acre mall property, including more than 330,000 square feet of shops and restaurants, more than 140,000 square feet of offices, up to 400 hotel rooms, and 961 homes. The phase one development would leave capacity for 325 additional homes, which would likely be built on land that is now a parking lot at Marlton Avenue and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard.

The sale of the Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza was a contentious, drawn out process. CIM Group had originally been slated to take control of the land, only to back away from the deal following community backlash. Harridge eventually cast its winning bid in August 2021, beating out a competing proposal from the community-based Downtown Crenshaw Rising organization.

City of Los Angeles

Harridge, which is also backing plans for a large high-rise complex surrounding the Crossroads of the World complex in Hollywood, had pursued even more property in the Baldwin Hills area. The Los Angeles-based firm was also a finalist in the effort to redevelop the neighboring Marlton Square property, but lost out to a bid from Hudson Pacific Properties.

While the Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza site may be the largest project in the near vicinity, developers have recently set their sights on properties up and down Crenshaw Boulevard, due in part to the arrival of Metro's K Line, often taking advantage of the Transit Oriented Communities incentives.

Once struggling with academic performance, an elementary school in Baldwin Hills is now thriving after teachers took a step back and tailored the curriculum to the students.

BALDWIN HILLS, LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Once struggling with academic performance, an elementary school in Baldwin Hills is now thriving after teachers took a step back and tailored the curriculum to the students.

Since adopting the new curriculum in 2016, student performance at Baldwin Hills Elementary School has dramatically increased.

Stacey Joy, a teacher at the school, decided to switch things up in the classroom when she noticed a lack of enthusiasm from students.

"The kids were like so excited, like you could tell that it's like, get us away from those old funky books and let's do something new and fun," said Joy.

That meant a new curriculum that embraces and incorporates the African-American identify and experience into daily lesson plans.

In just two years, achievement in English increased by 27% among African-American students and 62% in math, according to the California Department of Education. African-American students at the school are now exceeding state averages in both subjects by roughly 100%.

Last month, the school received the 2020 California Distinguished School Award for closing the achievement gap.

"We're really excited about it. We have over 82% of students of African descent and traditionally when you're talking about black families and Latino families, the common trend has been their underachievement," said Dr. Letitia Johnson-Davis, the school's principal.

The curriculum is more rigorous for students and teachers and it's in constant revision as teams of educators assess what works and what doesn't. Parents also play a key role.

In fact, it was parents and educators together that initiated the shift, making Baldwin Hills elementary a pilot school still under the LAUSD umbrella - but with the autonomy to shape its own educational program.

Tünette Powell says her son used to struggle with writing but not anymore.

"The 4th grade teacher started using poetry and hip hop to get him to fall in love with writing and to find his voice. He starts getting fours in writing and I'm just like oh my god, and now he's so arrogant about his writing as if he's always been good at it," she said. "But it's like that's just an example of being able to bring in curriculum that is relevant and that is culturally relevant and means something to kids. That's been really important for us."

Alicia Montgomery, the executive director for the Center for Powerful Public School who studies the roughly 40 pilot schools in LAUSD, says Baldwin Hills is getting it right.

"The idea that the expertise is in the room and how we use that expertise to create better outcomes for students is critical and absolutely can be replicated," she said.
