Active Oil Wells – 3,200-Foot Buffer
This is a map of areas of the state that won’t be eligible for SB 4 owing to the additional exclusion of areas within a 3,200-feet of an active oil well—an exclusion added to the bill by the Assembly Natural Resources Committee.
In plain English, this means that schools, churches, synagogues, and mosques in these areas will not be able to build affordable housing pursuant to this law. While SB 4 will still be a major step forward in creating opportunities for affordable housing, we hope legislators will reconsider this blanket exclusion in the future.
