Oil & Gas Development Applications
MCGC Neighbors has been notified about 2 Oil & Gas Well Permit applications: 1 new and 1 existing. We received notification about the new application, DA-2010-00, on August 13, 2015. Unfortunately, due to our current shortage of volunteer help with development application review, we didn't have the resources to notify the community until now. We received notice about the existing application, DA-1957-00, on August 24, 2015.
