Fort Collins wants to hear residents’ opinions on potential oil and gas regulations within city limits.

After 2019 state legislation expanded local authority over oil and gas operations, Fort Collins City Council directed staff to start drafting possible oil and gas regulations to preserve the community’s environment, public health and safety.

The city is holding two public meetings to inform residents about oil and gas development in Fort Collins and seek feedback on potential regulations.

The first meeting is set for 6-8 p.m. Monday, March 2, in the Columbine Room of the Lincoln Center, 417 W. Magnolia St.

The second meeting is set for 6-8 p.m. Thursday, March 5, in the Prairie Sage Room at the Fort Collins Senior Center, 1200 Raintree Drive.

Find more information about Fort Collins’ development of oil and gas regulations and details on oil and gas development in city limits on Fort Collins’ website.
