What we did do is work very hard to assure that, when the density in some locations doubled, it would be done in the best way for our residents. We did not pledge "not to oppose applications ... to reduce spacing ..." We did agree that we would not oppose the issues addressed in the MOUs, as they had been agreed upon in a complicated and time-consuming negotiation process, and several points were unprecedented concessions by industry.
Industry representatives, landowners, attorneys for citizens and COGCC members all agreed that the agreements we signed were a good thing.
