Citizen Groups Request Broomfield Intervene in Erie Acme Pad Negotiations



In a 10/15 letter to Broomfield City Council, Broomfield citizen groups requested that the City become a “party of interest” as Erie renegotiates agreements with Crestone Peak Resources.    Anthem residents would be highly impacted by the proposed Crestone Acme Pad located at the corner of Highway 7 and Bonanza Drive due to “traffic, air emissions (including pollutants), noise, odor, and safety aspects for this proposed oil and gas development,” according to the letter.

Local groups signing the letter included the following:  

  • 301 Broomfield Health and Safety First
  • AROGEG – Anthem Ranch Oil and Gas Education Group
  • BCAW – Broomfield Clean Air and Water
  • BCCN – Broomfield Concerned a Coalition of Neighborhoods
  • Broomfield Moms Active Community
  • LOGIC – League of Oil and Gas Impacted Coloradans
  • One Broomfield Indivisible
  • WOGc – Wildgrass Oil and Gas Committee

On July 17, the City of Broomfield sent a letter to Erie requesting that Erie and Crestone agree that the Acme Pad sited just north of Broomfield “comply with all the requirements of Broomfield’s oil and gas regulations as approved on July 10, 2018.”  Broomfield’s letter was in response to a referral for the Crestone Acme Pad application sent by Erie on June 27.

The Acme Pad has not yet been permitted by Erie or the COGCC.  Regarding any COGCC permitting, the citizen groups are asking that Broomfield file for “permissive interventor” status, similar to what Adams County did in the COGCC permitting of the Extraction Northwest and Interchange Pads in Broomfield.
