WE NEED YOUR HELP! ACTI ON NEEDED BY 7/28/14!

FPG (Frontier Parent Group) is working to ensure that a proposed drilling site
near Frontier Elementary School does not negatively impact the health, safety or
well-being of our children, the school, and the community.
SOUTH GREELEY DIRECTIONAL PROJECT: 19 WELLS, 20 TANKS
 Mineral Resources, Inc. has filed a large oil and gas drilling
operation proposal, called South Greeley Directional, located
1,512 feet away from the Frontier Academy Elementary School
building and a little over 1,000 feet from the playground.
 This site is very concerning in such close proximity to the
school, businesses and homes who will be faced with increased
health, safety, traffic, and noise issues. This location is NOT
suitable for an industrial operation.
 HELP PROTECT OUR SCHOOLS, NEIGHBORHOODS AND COMMUNITY;
DEMAND FOR BALANCED RESPONSIBLE DEVELOPMENT!
