BOCC Virtual Public Hearing on Temporary Oil/Gas Moratorium

Description

Board of Boulder County Commissioners’ Virtual Public Hearing - July 14, 2020

DUE TO COVID-19, THIS HEARING WILL BE HELD VIRTUALLY

The Board of Boulder County Commissioners (BOCC) will hold a virtual public hearing on Tuesday, July 14, 2020 at 2:30 p.m. to consider any necessary changes to the temporary moratorium on oil and gas development applications and seismic testing in unincorporated Boulder County, which is currently set to expire July 31. The moratorium is in effect while staff updates the existing oil and gas regulations in response to the passage of Senate Bill 19-181. However, the previous schedule for public review of the regulations was vacated due to COVID-19.

At the July 14 BOCC public hearing, which will be held virtually (see details below), county staff will propose a revised schedule for public review of the draft regulations that were released March 6 and are available for review on the county oil and gas website. Written public testimony only will be taken for the July 14 hearing on the moratorium.

Based on the information presented by staff and public testimony, the BOCC will determine whether to extend, terminate, or further amend the temporary moratorium.
