The City of Fort Collins is seeking public input on potential oil and gas regulations in City limits.
In April 2019, Senate Bill 181 was adopted in Colorado, which gave local governments land use authority to regulate the siting and surface impacts of oil and gas development. The City is currently exploring potential regulations and is seeking public input.
Two public meetings have been scheduled to provide the public with information about oil and gas development in city limits as well as solicit feedback on preferred regulatory options.
The meetings will be held:
- Monday, March 2, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the Columbine Room of the Lincoln Center, 417 W. Magnolia St.
- Thursday March 5, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the Prairie Sage Room at the Fort Collins Senior Center, 1200 Raintree Drive
