06 Feb ALL North Fork Parcels Removed from the Feb. 14th Lease Sale!
February 6, 2013
In a press release sent out early this morning, the BLM Colorado Office has announced that all 20 North Fork Valley parcels have been removed from the Feb. 14th oil and gas lease sale.
This is a tremendous victory for the community in the North Fork Valley! Thank you to everyone who wrote letters to the BLM, our U.S. Senators, Rep. Tipton, and other elected officials asking them to make the right decision and removed the parcels from the sale.
The BLM has said that “We are addressing the deferred parcels through continued dialogue with the local community and with ongoing planning efforts in the Uncompahgre Field Office.”
Citizens for a Healthy Community will keep up the pressure on the BLM to make sure these parcels are not put up for leasing again.
