Sandoval County residents! An opportunity to become informed about the potential impacts of oil and gas drilling in our county.

The County is in the process of amending its Comprehensive Zoning Ordinance to deal with oil and gas extraction.

The current draft has serious flaws and does not sufficiently address noise, odors, or impacts on county services. It does not require oil and gas companies to conduct environmental impact assessments before drilling. It lacks considerations for cultural, archeological, recreational and wildlife sites; and much more.

Now, the County Planning and Zoning Commission is considering whether to scrap the draft and instead approve drilling permits using Special Use provisions in the existing Zoning Ordinance. This means the County can approve each oil and gas application based on a set of general standards rather than amending the Ordinance to outline more specific requirements.

Join us for a showing of the compelling Emmy Award winning documentary ‘Split Estate’. Learn how oil drilling and fracking can have broad impacts on communities. Learn how you can have input into this important process.

There will be 2 film showings. One in Rio Rancho on August 15th, and one in Placitas on August 19th.
*Light snacks and refreshments provided.

After each show, we will also discuss what Sandoval County residents can do to ensure strong protections against oil and gas development.

Hope to see you there!
