Oil and gas development is one of the most significant land use issues facing many planners in Colorado. Weld County is the most impacted County in the State and planners working in the County have learned how to work with the industry. It is beneficial to share that knowledge with planners from around the State. 2. All four presenters are planners or professionals who are working on oil and gas related issues and are therefore experts experts on the subject matter. The presentation and question and answer period are anticipated to take 90 minutes so the session will be worth 1.5 CM. 3. We anticipate that APA Colorado will have a system in place for recording attendance and evaluating content. Pam Hora, AICP is the point of contact for this session.
