Petition Statement

It's appalling that the Allegheny County Council is considering allowing fracking in our public parks. Our parks are important community resources—not places for dangerous, polluting gas extraction!

Please protect your constituents and our public resources by supporting the ordinance in support of a moratorium on fracking.
There are currently 1,574 signatures. NEW goal - We need 2,000 signatures!

Petition Background

Allegheny County Executive Rich Fitzgerald is planning on allowing fracking on or under our parks. Fracking our parks would industrialize land reserved for recreation and relaxation, bringing dangerous and polluting infrastructure such as pipelines, compressor stations and truck traffic right through our community's public spaces.

Fracking is destroying communities around Pennsylvania. We need to keep this dangerous practice out of Allegheny County parks.
