Re: Binghamton propsoing ban on fracking
really? wow I had no clue :P
you will notice the bit in parenthesis about (not to be confused with the city of Binghamton). I simply quoted the current lease offerings for the Town of Binghamton to show that they are interested in drilling that area. And why wouldn't they be as the pipeline runs through the City of Binghamton. I also noted the rural areas on the zoning map you linked to. (which is a zoning map of the City of Binghamton). Surprisingly, even the more developed areas like Burr Ave contain some 10 plus acre lots inside the city limits. The undeveloped teal blue areas on that map are much larger of course but also within the city limits.
The thing that interests me with the news story is this is potentially the first municipality in the Southern Tier to ban fracking. As it says in the linked news story: A moratorium in Binghamton would be the first in the Southern Tier, an area considered to have the strongest potential for natural gas production in the state due to its underlying geology.
So I'll ask what is it you are trying to say?
