A Look Back at 2014 & to What’s Ahead

January 6, 2015 –

Dear friends,

Happy New Year!  Read on for a recap of 2014’s successes and a look toward the coming months.  We’ve also compiled a list of the 20 most important news stories about oil and gas development locally, at the state level, and elsewhere in the country, from 2014.

Last year brought considerable progress and a number of important accomplishments.  A few of those accomplishments include making progress on our efforts to Protect the North Fork Valley’s public lands from drilling and fracking, completing the collection of air samples from the region, and stopping a bad oil pipelines bill from passing the state legislature.  Click here to read more about CHC’s 2014 accomplishments and click here for a broader look back at fracking in 2014 from a Colorado-wide perspective.

In 2015, we’re going to take on some big projects.  Some of the more notable undertakings include tackling the BLM’s public comment period on the draft Resource Management Plan (expected sometime this winter), a public comment period on SG Interests’ proposed 146-well Bull Mountain Master Development Plan, and announcing and publicizing our baseline air sampling results.  There’s also a lot coming down the pike on the national level, with numerous oil and gas related rulemakings coming up.

If you’re still in search of a New Year’s resolution, consider resolving to donate financially to, or volunteering for, CHC.  Click here to donate now and click here to sign up to volunteer.  Thank you for everything that you do to protect our way of life in the Delta County region.

Jim Ramey

CHC Executive Director
