On Monday, February 6th, the City of Longmont will host a Community Open House to ask the public to respond to carefully framed questions regarding the city’s revision of Longmont’s Oil and Gas Regulations. This orchestrated format precludes meaningful options for responsible regulation.

Most Longmont residents want regulations that protect our health, safety, well-being, and property values. We don’t want fracking near our homes, schools, churches, and sensitive environments. We want responsible regulations that sustain our rights, but we will not be given an opportunity to vote on fracking in Longmont.

Monday’s Community Open House allows us to be seen and heard, without having to speak up or stand out.

Please attend the February 6th Open House to participate in a unified response.

LongmontROAR representatives will be outside to greet you when you arrive. We will have information and instructions on how to deliver a surprising and respectful message to our City Government. Your presence will be the voice of our community.

We would like to have an estimate of how many people might attend. Please signup here or at The website has additional information about the City Open House, the issue of Oil & Gas Wells and Fracking in Longmont, how this threatens Longmont residents, and what we can do.

When: February 6 th, 2012. 4:30 pm to 6:00 pm

Where: Longmont Civil Center, 350 Kimbark Street, Longmont CO 80501

Why: To demonstrate that we expect Responsible Oil and Gas Regulation.

We hope to see you there,
