Loveland fracking moratorium on November ballot

LOVELAND — A two-year moratorium on oil and gas fracking within the city of Loveland will be on the November ballot.

The advocacy group Protect Our Loveland turned in nearly 4,000 signatures and City Clerk Terry Andrews said Tuesday that the petitions meet requirements for the ballot.

According to the Loveland Reporter-Herald, the proposed ordinance would place a two-year moratorium on the use of hydraulic fracturing, also known as fracking, to extract oil and gas within city limits.
