City Council Moves for a Moratorium on Oil and Gas Activities
The Longmont City Council recently moved in the direction of imposing a 4 month moratorium on the acceptance or processing of any land use applications, permits or any other applications requesting approval to conduct oil and gas extraction and/or operation activities within the city limits beginning December 20, 2011. The Council will officially vote on this ordinance proposal in the near future. A special public presentation by the oil and gas industry on the impact to the Longmont community was held on December 7 in the City Council Chambers. The presentation was very similar to the information presented to the City Council on November 15.
