City Council approves oil and gas moratorium on first reading

On October 17, the Lafayette City Council enacted a 12-month moratorium upon the submission, acceptance, processing, and approval of all land and special use applications regarding oil and gas exploration and extraction.

This moratorium will provide staff and Council a period of time to investigate the necessity and ability of the City to regulate the impacts upon the City and its citizens, and to develop and implement any appropriate regulations needed to protect and preserve the public’s health, safety and welfare.

View the full text of the moratorium passed on first reading.  Second reading is scheduled for the November 6, 2017, City Council meeting.
