Mon. Sept 26: Josh Joswick talk on "County Rights to Regulate Oil & Gas Development"

CHC Presents: Josh Joswick
Staff Organizer, Colorado Energy Issues, San Juan Citizens Alliance, talk on:
"County Rights to Regulate Oil & Gas Development"
Monday, Sept 26th
7 PM
La Veta Community Center

La Veta, CO

Josh brings nearly 20 years of experience in dealing with the oil and gas industry to the position of Oil and Gas Issues Organizer. He served three terms as a La Plata County Commissioner from January 1993 to January 2005; in that capacity, locally he worked to see that La Plata County’s oil and gas land use regulations were not only enforced but expanded to protect surface owners’ rights. Josh has dealt with numerous agencies, and legislative and Congressional elected officials, to uphold the rights of local governments to exercise their land use authority as it pertained to oil and gas development, and to assert the right of local government to address the environmental impacts of oil and gas development.

Huerfano county commissioners and planning and zoning commissioners have been invited to this informative talk to learn about what  county officials can and have done in other counties.

There will be a Q&A period after the talk.
