Oil & Gas Extraction in Valencia County?

On Thursday, July 14, the Valencia County Board of Commissioners will hold a public hearing at 5:00 p. m. on a proposed Natural Resources Overlay Zone at the Los Lunas Transportation Center, 101 Courthouse Rd. SE in Los Lunas. Sign-up at 4:30 p. m. to give public comment. Remarks limited to three minutes per the published agenda.

There is significant concern that this proposed overlay zone would open up the West Mesa and Rio Grande Valley to drilling, including the possibility of fracking and without standard protections. It is not clear from readily available public information where the overlay zone would be located.

Contact Valencia County Planning & Zoning at 505-866-2050 or the form below for more information.
