On June 4th, the city of Boulder passed a one year moratorium on fracking to allow for more health and environmental impact studies and Lafayette is currently in the process of pursuing a citywide ban.
While City bans and moratoriums are a great start, countywide action will have a much more significant impact. For the past several months, thousands of Boulder County citizens including environmental scientists, members of the medical community and attorneys have provided countless reasons for why Boulder should extend the moratorium for gas and oil drilling. Thousands of citizens have sent emails, postcards, made phone calls and showed up to public hearings to personally plea with commissioners to make the logical, responsible and prudent decision to extend Boulder County's Moratorium on oil and gas. On June 18th the commissioners will take a vote on the future of Fracking in Boulder County. Your voice counts, please Email the commissioners now!
Below are some public testimony given by Boulder citizens to the Boulder County Commissioners:
