April 13: Demand extension of O&G moratoriums!
The Larimer Alliance is calling for public comment when The Larimer County Commissioners hold a public hearing at 3:30 PM, Tuesday, April 13. They will consider extending the current one month moratoriums on processing 1041 and oil and gas permits. The temporary moratoriums presently in force will expire on April 15. The hearing will take place in the hearing room of the County Courthouse and Administrative Building at 200 W. Oak St. in Fort Collins. Registration and general information on the meeting and agenda can be found on this page, and the direct link to register for this event can be found here.
The Commissioners and Planning Department have laudably extended the process for revision and public comment. The processing of applications related to oil and gas development should remain on hold until that process has been completed, and Larimer County has comprehensive and effective regulations in place.
If you are unable to attend this session, remember you can still register your opinion with the Commissioners at their administrative matters meeting, held regularly every Tuesday morning at 9:00 AM also at the County Courthouse. Your comment can be delivered virtually on line, by calling in, or by email as detailed here.
