Petition to ban heavy industrialization in Treadwell/Franklin, New York

We, the undersigned residents of all villages and countries, request that the Town Board of Franklin, NY pass legislation prohibiting heavy industrial activities including gas mining and related industries, including hydraulic fracturing, until such a time as it can be proven that such activity does not damage in any way our water, our air, our night sky, our roads, our health, our property values and rural quality of life. Further, we ask that a law be enacted to control excessive use of town/hamlet roads by heavy equipment associated with heavy industry in the event that neighboring towns do not also prohibit such industrialization. Further, we ask that a law be enacted to ban the acceptance of contaminated waste water from out-of-town or out-of-state entities by any facility for any purpose.
