While Oil and Gas Development becomes more prevalent in our Colorado communities, current state legislation is failing to represent the will and best interests of the people. A growing body of evidence suggests hydraulic fracturing and other highly industrial processes are associated with severe health impacts, lowered property values and contamination of our air and water.
The time has come for Coloradans to take a stand for the health and safety of our communities. This is our Colorado and we must preserve our right to protect our families, properties and way of life.
There are only 21 inspectors for the 50,000+ active wells in Colorado
Colorado is home to a number of diverse communities with unique concerns. “One size fits all” regulations are inappropriate to our needs. We have both the opportunity and responsibility to protect our communities and the future of Colorado. Cast your ballot in favor of local control over hydraulic fracking and Oil & Gas Development.
We are a Colorado grassroots movement working to gain local control over oil & gas development and fracking in our communities via a state ballot initiative.
Join a large and growing list of Colorado leaders, business groups, organizations and individuals who care about Local Control in Colorado.
