Will Potter County Take A Lesson From Bradford County

Resident to commissioners: Bradford County needed zoning to prepare for gas boom

The Daily Review

TOWANDA - At the most recent meeting of the Bradford County commissioners, a Sayre resident said she was upset that, in the middle of a gas boom, most of Bradford County lacks zoning.

The resident, Shelly Northrop of Sayre, said that zoning is needed to protect communities from having gas facilities be located where they are not wanted.

Is it too late for Bradford County....more

If you actually read the story, you will see how this is something every township and borough in Potter County should consider but how many are doing that? Countywide zoning is pretty unpopular and these decisions are best left to townships and boroughs instead of having the county force itself on the local governments.

The gas company will wave a dollar bill under tne township stupidvisors nose and they will shake with delight and never give a thought or concern for the people or the enviormental impact of the drilling.

All those smug potter county citizens who railed against zoning for the last 15 years and are now crying about being overtaken by the gas industry can now hang their heads in shame.

We don't have to worry about anything in the Austin area our leaders turn away anything new that comes along!

I would agree with you, except...major blocks (TRILLIONS of Cubic feet) of this shale gas are already slated for liquifaction and sale overseas.

Big Pipeline being built through Potter County going to run up to Canada border near Buffalo to ship gas to Canada.

and

Liquifaction and export facility being built in Louisiana that will export 840 BILLION Cu Feet of Liquified natural Gas each year.

This platitude about gas being needed for America's future is all fine and good. I even agree with that.

But the reality of this is far removed from your pro gas for America platitude.

Please....get yourself informed.
The damage being done to the environment is not about America's energy future. It's being done in the name of profit only.
