Franklin Park Borough Council Legislative Meeting
- This event has passed.
The Franklin Park Borough Council will hold a public hearing on the lease to drill/frack for gas under Linbrook Park. (see google map at: https://goo.gl/maps/56oaEJtJnv32 the park is in the NW corner of the borough) Residents and non-residents are encouraged to attend, but only residents may speak.Fracking in Linbrook Park enables the operation of the permitted PennEnergy Well on Amsler Ridge Road in Economy. The four mile radius from that well includes Economy, Franklin Park, Bell Acres, Sewickley Hills, Sewickley Heights and Sewickley Heights Park. There should be no legislative action taken vote on the Linbrook Park lease during the busy holiday season. The Council should convene a public hearing in early 2019, in order to allow for community participation in this important decision. Franklin Park needs to amend its zoning code to account for oil and gas extraction land uses. It presently has no such zoning ordinances.
