5 States Leading The Fight Against Fracking

5 States Leading The Fight Against Fracking

Colorado Springs Citizens for Community Rights recently issued a lengthy statement about their goals to prevent hydraulic fracturing in their community. A Houston gas company wants to drill within the city limits on 18,000 acres it bought last year out of a developer’s bankruptcy. The group says it is organizing to put a community rights based ban against fracking on the ballot in Colorado Springs. North of Colorado Springs, the city of Longmont has become ground zero in the fight to protect residential communities from fracking. Earlier this year, the Longmont City Council approved a new set of oil and gas regulations, meant to keep drilling out of residential areas, and was promptly sued by the state. Now, citizens have been successful in getting a city-wide fracking ban on the ballot, and it will be open for vote on November 6. More info at LongmontROAR.org .
