Why was the moratorium issued now?

Oil and gas development continues to expand in our area, and the City anticipates this will only continue in the future. Evaluating and improving regulations that protect our community and its residents is a necessary step. Once we do that, we can establish a thoughtful approach to land use permitting for oil and gas development that sets a path forward for Dacono residents, the City, and oil and gas operators.
