Proposed Ban

Dear Neighbors,

We have come a long way! The Enfield Town Board is considering whether to pass a ban on hydrofracking in Enfield, and NOW is the time they need to hear from you that you fully support it!

Click here for a draft of the Proposed Law.

While you all signed the petition, for some of you that was over two years ago, and a lot has happened since then. The Board needs to know you haven't gone away, or changed your minds, or have lost interest in this issue. They need to hear clearly from their constituents that we want this more than ever.

Please let them know by speaking your support at the upcoming Public Hearing on Tuesday, March 5 at the Enfield Schol cafeteria, 7:00 pm- or just writing a short note/postcard to the Town Board that expresses your support for the ban.

It's not necessary to convince them of the reasons this is the best choice for Enfield (though feel free to share whatever you are moved to). As your elected officials, they simply need to hear that you are in favor of passing this law. We want our Town Board members to feel confident that the majority of residents support this, and that they are acting appropriately on their behalf. 

Letters can be written to: 

Enfield Town Clerk
