Red Zone Map
The areas in red indicate where, under existing COGCC regulations, oil or gas wells could be allowed to be drilled in Longmont. This does not take into account the recent Residential Zone ban in the city’s new regulations that the state is currently suing the city over. This map was provided by the City of Longmont (the color has been altered for clarity) and was created by them using the COGCC’s current 350 foot setback standards from buildings. It does not indicate current permits or intent to drill.
Note how the red often overlaps park areas and is located next to half of the schools in Longmont.
