Due to COVID-19, Board of County Commissioners Vacates Schedule for Review of Proposed Oil and Gas Regulations

New dates will be announced when renewed Boulder County operations can be predicted with certainty

Boulder County, Colo. - In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the public meetings currently scheduled for review of Boulder County’s proposed oil and gas regulations (amendments to Article 12 of the Boulder County Land Use Code covering Oil and Gas Operations) in front of the Planning Commission and Board of County Commissioners are canceled.

Because the dynamic situation with the pandemic does not allow county staff to predict when public facilities will be open and public gatherings will again be appropriate, new dates for these hearings are not yet proposed. Updates to the schedule will be announced as soon as a safe and robust public process is possible. See for updates on all oil and gas related matters.
