Andes is a Frack-Free Zone!

Thank you!!!

Our deep thanks to Andes Town Supervisor Marty Donnelly and the Andes Town Board members who voted to pass a moratorium on heavy industry on fracking for six months as the Board watches legal processes on banning around the state. We thank all of you for hearing the majority of area residents and understanding that we must find better ways to build our economy than allowing international mega-corporations chew us up and spit us out.

And our thanks to everyone who has signed our petition, written letters, talked to their neighbors, and shared their thoughts with the Town Board. Your support made it possible for the Board to make this brave move.

We will continue to watch the Town Board’s decisions about the more permanent ban, but we are officially frack-free at this moment, and are truly pleased. It is looking like fracking is not going to happen in the NYC Watershed, if it does happen in NYS, but we believe that every protection possible is really important so we don’t lose what makes Andes so special (and the economic layers that come with that).

So, tell your friends — Andes is a frack-free zone! Come on in, the water’s fine…
