Hurley's Moratorium Proposal and Our Letter Of Concern
Welcome to Sustainable Hurley!
Sustainable Hurley is a group of residents and taxpayers from Hurley, West Hurley, and Glenford who are passionate about preserving the local environment, protecting public health and welfare, and dedicated to making Hurley a safe, sustainable town.
We invite all Hurley residents and taxpayers interested in issues of sustainability to join us in this work.
Our first goal is to work for a zoning ordinance that bans hydraulic fracturing, commonly known as "fracking," and related activities in Hurley.
If you support these objectives, and are interested in getting frequent updates, please "Like" us on our Facebook Page!
If you are a already a participant in our activities, or interested in becoming more involved, request to join the Sustainable Hurley Facebook group page.
Report on Candidates Questionnaire
Sustainable Hurley is pleased to report that all six candidates for public office in the Town of Hurley, including Gary Bellows, Tracy Kellogg, Janet Briggs, Ashley Dittus, Marie Shultis, and Barbara Zell, have responded thoughtfully and positively to our recent questionnaire.
We asked them: 1.Given the requirements of the Comprehensive Plan to promote and enhance the rural nature of Hurley and to protect its water, do you favor a zoning amendment that would prohibit heavy industry such as hydrofracturing and use of its waste and related byproducts within Hurley? 2. Do you favor protecting the people of Hurley by putting in place an immediate moratorium on fracking and all related activities and products? 3. If elected, or reelected, will you work to have a zoning amendment banning fracking in place within a year of your election? 4. As a town board member will you actively pursue implementation of all aspects of the Comprehensive Plan throughout the township?
Their responses uniformly supported Sustainable Hurley’s efforts to prohibit hydraulic fracturing and related processes in the Town of Hurley. The candidates' comments elaborating their positions can be viewed at:
Sustainable Hurley would like to thank all the candidates for taking time to answer the questionnaire. We believe the responses will help Hurley residents better understand the positions of Hurley candidates on these vital matters.
