A new report predicts that northwest Colorado's population could double to about 417,000 over the next 30 years because of the energy boom and the number of gas wells could soar to more than 50,000.

Mesa County is developing an energy master plan and is asking for the public’s input.
The energy master plan will identify the known energy resources and opportunities within Mesa County, address potential impacts on the community, analyze current energy related policies and make a set of recommended policies and regulations. Mesa County spokeswoman Jessica Peterson says an important part of the process is getting public input, “tell us what it is they are seeing about energy development, what’s interesting to them, maybe what concerns them, if they think there are positive benefits.”
There are going to be five more meetings for the time and dates of those meetings click on the link below.
