Residents Gather to Say “No” to Massive 26-Well Neighborhood Fracking Proposal in Loveland
Residents feel betrayed by Troy McWhinney’s plan to frack peaceful Centerra neighborhood.

WHO: Loveland Fracking Concerns made up of concerned Loveland residents, and Colorado Rising team up to oppose the greed and environmental exploitation of Troy McWhinney’s proposed fracking plans in the Centerra neighborhood. Loveland resident Sally J Hartshorn, BS, BSN, MS exclaims, “As a retired respiratory nurse and an asthmatic, I strongly oppose any fracking in Colorado’s front range and specifically at Centerra. The scientific evidence is overwhelming. Fracking is bad for our health and contributes to climate change. The McWhinney’s state on their website that ‘nature is part of the DNA of Centerra’ But any proposed fracking reflects the nature of deceptive marketing to potential home buyers and renters. Fracking in the Centerra area puts the health and safety of all residents in the area at risk.

WHAT: Rally and Press Conference: Event Link


WHEN: Saturday, March 12, 2022 | 11:00AM

WHY: Troy McWhinney – a real estate mogul and entrepreneur – is in the beginning stages of applying for approval for a massive fracking project in the Centerra area of Loveland. The proposal includes two sites with up to 26 wells to be located in close proximity to thousands of homes, the Medical Center of the Rockies, three schools, numerous businesses, and precious community lakes including Boyd, Houts Reservoir, and Equalizer Lake. Residents are feeling betrayed as the community is marketed as “a neighborhood designed to create a healthy environment“ with access to trails, lakes, community gardens and a plethora of wildlife viewing opportunities. The event will highlight Troy McWhinney’s fracking proposal as a betrayal of what this community stands for – embracing and enjoying Centerra’s natural beauty, not fracking it.
