Rally at the Sandoval Planning & Zoning Public Hearing
May 23 @ 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm
Come and rally ahead of a Sandoval County Planning and Zoning Commission meeting on oil and gas ordinances. The rally will take place outside the building where the hearing will take place.
This event is hosted by: Common Ground Rising/ Stop Fracking the Rio Grande Valley
MORE INFORMATION: For the past 18 months, Sandoval County Commission has been undergoing a process of formulating its oil and gas ordinance. The ordinance was initially pursued in November 2015 when Sand Ridge Energy Inc., an Oklahoma-based oil and gas company, applied for a special-use permit. Since then, citizen groups have organized to give formal comment, input and reports for inclusion in the ordinance to ensure protections from the impacts of the extraction industry–including all surface impacts.
The current draft ordinance lacks adequate provisions to safeguard communities from the impacts of fracking. Counselor Chapter is in Sandoval County. Counselor, and other Navajo communities in Greater Chaco, are already experiencing the brutal impacts of fracking.
Fracking threatens our most precious resources. Please come show your support and sign up to give your comment!
LOCATION: The rally and hearing will take place at 1500 Idalia Road, Building D, Bernalillo, NM 87004. The hearing will take place at 6pm on the 3rd floor.
