Coloradans uniting for
health & safety over fracking
In the summer of 2016

This small group quickly became a state-wide movement of over 100,000 people. The power is in our hands. We can bring back democracy and set a new standard of participation in our communities. We can choose a clean, renewable future now.

With state rules as a floor (min requirement), the local control initiative would give each local government a very wide range of options to protect their communities and neighborhoods from the harms generally associated with oil and gas development including hydraulic fracturing.
The mandatory setback initiative establishes a buffer zone of 2,500’ (about a ½ mile) around homes, hospitals and schools, as well as sensitive areas like playgrounds and drinking water sources, from new oil and gas development.
