Committee Purpose

At their February 19, 2013 meeting, the EAB formed a Shale Gas Development Subcommittee comprised of the EAB members shown above. The EAB tasked the subcommittee with the following work plan pertaining to shale gas development:

  • Monitor and update the EAB about potential legislation
  • Review, understand and report to the EAB potential risks to the Town
  • Review, understand and report to the EAB potential risks to homeowners
  • Make recommendations to the EAB about educating and communicating risks to the Town Council
  • Make recommendations to the EAB about what the EAB can do to ensure shale gas development does not result in negative impacts to Cary’s quality of life, health and economy
  • Make recommendations to the EAB about what the EAB can do to advise the Town Council and staff about potential approaches to address adverse consequences

 The subcommittee will present a final report to the EAB on or before the EAB's November 12, 2013 meeting. The EAB will dissolve the subcommittee at that time.
