Are current oil and gas sites allowed to continue operating while the moratorium is in place?

Yes. The moratorium only applies to new applications for oil and gas development in Dacono. Operators seeking a land use permit may still be granted one while the moratorium is in place, provided the Operator and City Council agree to an oil and gas permit through a City-approved operator agreement.
