Say No To MEO

April 9, 2016



Dear Friends and Supporters,


Protect PT will be holding a rally to motivate our local government to reverse their decision on implementing the Mineral Extraction Overlay in their final draft.  While we recognize that state law requires the township must allow for unconventional gas development, we would urge the commissioners to consider the consequences of permitting a heavy industrial activity in over 60% of the township.  The industrial zone exists for just such purpose.  We encourage them to vote No To The MEO and recognize that the constitutional rights of the people should be of the highest priority in their ordinance.

This is a turning point for our community and we need your help!  

Please join us on Wednesday, April 13th from 3-7pm to broaden public awareness of this campaign.  We will be meeting at 3pm in the municipal parking lot.  Please RSVP to help out at the rally by clicking here.  This will allow us to plan flyer distribution and transportation to and from the rally point.

“Hello PT Friends, 

Penn Township is in the process of finalizing an ordinance that uses an overlay district called the MEO (Mineral Extraction Overlay District) to allow for high volume hydraulic fracturing, a heavy industrial activity, to occur in over 60% of the township. Go to and sign the petition to keep heavy industrial activity in industrial zones ONLY and away from our neighborhoods, homes, schools, daycares, and recreational areas."
