Colorado Parks and Wildlife commissioners voted unanimously Thursday to give the go-ahead to limited oil and gas drilling inside St. Vrain State Park, near Longmont.
KUNC reports that the 14-member panel OK'd a staff recommendation to allow Anadarko Petroleum Corp. to drill in the park starting in 2013.
The vote allows agency director Rick Cables to negotiate a lease with Anadarko, based in The Woodlands, Texas, one of three oil companies that have expressed an interest in the mineral rights under the park.
