Public Lands and Private Oil Wells In 1992, Los Angeles County voters approved Proposition A, providing money to preserve open space. Two years later, the County used Prop A funds to buy seven acres for parkland in the Whittier Hills. But in 2008, the City of Whittier leased it to the Matrix Oil Company, which says oil drilling will provide thousands of jobs and big money.
