Community Counts gains visibility in area

phCommunityCountssignRBC I Community Counts Colorado is a 501c3 non-profit organization established to connect the energy and extraction industries and the community through responsive, open communication.

The core of its program is a 24/7 Response Line (866-442-9034) that provides a direct line of communication between residents and energy and extraction industry operators to answer the needs of people living in the regions impacted by their operations.
CCC is becoming visible in the Rangely area with signs recently being installed on county roads in the area. Executive Director Nita Smith has presented to the Community Networking Group in Rangely and is now working with others in the community to help the community understand what Community Counts is and the services we provide.
Since 2014, Rio Blanco County Commissioners have helped with establishing the program in Rio Blanco County beginning with the Piceance Creek County Road 5 area. Commissioners have further supported CCC by having Dave Morlan, RBC Road and Bridge director, serve on CCC’s board of directors.
Would you like information on roadwork, road closures and delays, high volume energy traffic activity, rig moves and anything pertinent that the energy industry would like to inform you about? Could you provide community event activities or livestock moves that would be helpful for the operators and contractors to know about? Would you like Community Counts to do a presentation to your organization? If you live in Rangely, Meeker or anywhere in Rio Blanco County and would like to be on the CCC database or want to know more about Community Counts, please contact Nita at or give her a call at 303-916-4009.
