Staff has incorporated changes to the document based upon discussions during the last public hearing with the Planning and Zoning Commission and suggestions from Councilman Becker. The major changes included are best practices from the industry and separating the regulations for drilling, production, and pipelines into three separate documents.

Each change is denoted within the text (see Proposed Regulations section below). It is likely that the commission will make additional changes for its recommendation to council. After more than six months of meetings, research, and consultations, staff will be requesting that the commission take action on the proposed amendments with its changes, as needed.
