Notices Sent on Hearing at the COGCC to Designate the Broomfield County Commons as a Designated Outside Activity Area (DOAA).
As was mentioned in the December Oil and Gas Update, Broomfield sent out a required notice on the hearing at the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission (COGCC) to designate the Broomfield County Commons (BCC) and a buffer around the BCC as a Designated Outside Activity Area (DOAA). If the DOAA designation is granted by the COGCC, no surface oil and gas development can take place in the DOAA. The notice, which can be viewed here, was sent on December 20, 2018, to mineral and property owners in the DOAA area (BCC and a 350 foot buffer around the BCC). The notice includes a map of the area, notice of the upcoming January 28th and 29th hearing on the DOAA, a contact at Broomfield for questions, and a recitation of the pertinent COGCC rule.
