North Carolina County Considers Fracking Moratorium

The Lee County, North Carolina Board of Commissioners is set to consider a two year moratorium on fracking while the city makes changes to its land use plan and unified development ordinance. The Fayetteville Observer reports “Amy Dalrymple, chairwoman of the county Board of Commissioners, said a moratorium similar to the one adopted last month by Chatham County commissioners will be on the Lee County commissioners’ agenda for their Sept. 21 meeting.”
