ACTION: Please attend the Feb. 3 meeting and urge Council members to follow Gov. Wolf’s state parks example and place a hold on fracking of Allegheny County public parks.
After failing to obtain a stay on fracking beneath Deer Lakes County Park the Protect Our Parks coalition launched a petition calling for County Council to place a two-year hold on fracking of any of the remaining eight County Parks. With 1,900 signatures on the petition an unprecedented Citizens Ordinance was accepted for consideration by Council. On January 28 the Government Reform Committee, with neither a Yea nor Nay recommendation, moved the ordinance to the full council for a vote on February 3.
