Youngstown looking at community bill to protect resources from fracking

Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - The city of Youngstown is looking into the creation of a community bill of rights to protect some of our natural resources against the fracking process.

Concerned citizens packed Youngstown City Council chambers Sunday afternoon to listen to Ben Price who is with the Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund.

City leaders are considering a Youngstown citizen's rights based ban on hydrofracking that will protect the Meander Reservoir and the Mill Creek MetroParks.

"These ordinances are crafted in a way where they're intended to raise rights to the level of discussion that we're having about fracking and it's not a discussion that the industry wants to engage in," Price said.
