CHANGE FROM ERIE on 10/25: ERIE JUST SENT OUT A NOTICE THAT ONLY PRE-REGISTERED ERIE RESIDENTS CAN ATTEND THE TOWN HALL ON SATURDAY.

Broomfield residents should email their comments to erieoilandgas@erieco.gov

Erie Residents can pre-register here https://apm.activecommunities.com/townoferie/Activity_Search?txtActivitySearch=oil&applyFiltersDefaultValue=true&cat=Activities&fbclid=IwAR0Y7j7gD-zYVrE5zcQ0u9nLLslszGhxaQYcpZMxkqB0LJzJznF6B6UFVIs

Anthem Ranch and Anthem Highlands residents along with Erie residents will be greatly impacted if Crestone’s plans to put 30 wells on the Acme Pad at the corner of Highway 7 and Bonanza Drive go forward.  You can read the details of the plans in the new Amended and Restated Operator Agreement between Erie and Crestone here.  It was just released by Erie this week but Saturday will be the only opportunity for public input before a vote at Tuesday’s Board of Trustees Meeting.  The original plan, shown on the map, called for 16 wells on the Acme Pad.

Please consider attending the Erie Town Hall on Saturday if you are an Erie resident and attending the Erie Board of Trustees Meeting on Tuesday to raise your concerns about this oil and gas development which would be as close to Anthem Ranch and Anthem Highlands as the Extraction Livingston Pad.

In a 10/15 letter to Broomfield City Council, Broomfield citizen groups requested that the City become a “party of interest” as Erie renegotiated agreements with Crestone Peak Resources.  According to the letter, 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.”

Local groups signing the letter included the following:

  • 301 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.  It is reported that the City’s calls to Erie were not returned as a follow-up to their letter.
