Development of oil and gas has taken place within Greeley city limits since the 1970s and represents a unique type of land use. As a property right, mineral owners are allowed to access and extract the resource; these rights, however, are balanced against the rights of surface property owners. Surface owners and mineral rights owners may be the same but often are not, particularly within newer areas of the city.
Additional information, including external resources, regulations, and public health considerations is available on our resource page.
