Working with Local Governments

Several towns and counties across the state – including some of those most vulnerable to fracking – have passed resolutions against fracking or ordinances prohibiting or placing an extended moratorium on the industry. Though state legislation allows “pre-emption” challenges to ordinances by industry, both resolutions and ordinances can send powerful messages about a community’s deep concern about impacts to people and resources.

It may seem intimidating to approach local officials to urge them to pass an ordinance or resolution, but with the right approach, the whole process can be quite empowering.

The following guide has tips and advice for approaching local governments to pass a resolution or ordinance related to fracking.
