Energy policy — oil and gas: Open house to be held August 31 for Castle Rock area residents to learn about the Niobrara shale play


From the Castle Rock News Press:

The Development Services Department is beginning to draft regulations regarding oil and gas drilling within the Castle Rock town limits, and the public is invited to learn more. The public is invited to attend an open house from 6-8 p.m. Aug. 31 in Town Hall Council Chambers, 100 N. Wilcox St…

“We’ve had two inquiries thus far from oil companies,” added [Development Services Director Bill Detweiler], “There’s a lot of buzz surrounding this subject and we want to be out in front with our local regulations.” The Town will draft regulations surrounding site plan approval, emergency access and access roads. The proposed regulations will go before the Planning Commission in October and then to Town Council in November.
