The revelation that McWhinney planned to employ fracking to produce oil and gas from Loveland’s heavily populated Centerra district has neighbors worried. McWhinney, the Centerra developer, has a huge amount of subsurface mineral rights in the Loveland region around Interstate 25 and US Highway 34.
Residents were invited to an open house during the first week of January to learn more about the developer’s plans to frack in the region.More information will be accessible during the open house, which will be conducted virtually on Wednesday, January 19 from 6 to 7 p.m.
He stated a tape of the meeting will be made accessible for anyone who is unable to attend. Before the meeting, he wouldn’t say anything about the plans, such as the number of wells under consideration or the specific position within Centerra.”This is truly supposed to be a discussion between me and my neighbors there are several thousand of them,” McWhinney said, “so they can hear from me before any submittals to the city or the state.”
