We, the undersigned elected officials, are concerned about protecting the health, safety and
welfare of all Colorado citizens. With the rapidly increasing residential oil and gas development
encroaching on all of our communities, we have recognized that the industry is creating border
wars between neighboring municipalities. One example that supports this statement is how oil
and gas operator proposals continuously attempt or successfully move well pads out of one
jurisdiction into another. We are writing to inform you that we will continue to stand united
against these border wars and will not be swayed by this divisive approach.
