On February 18, 2008, the Fort Worth City Council voted unanimously to begin accepting bids for drilling rights to the western and southern parts of Lake Worth. Undoubtedly, this means that lease offers will soon begin pouring in to lake residents. PLEASE, for your own sake, begin participating with the neighborhood association in the drilling discussion.
The Scenic Shores Neighborhood Association will provide the support and structure for members (and non-members) who own mineral rights to use in the negotiation of mineral leases. We are fortunate that other neighborhood associations around Lake Worth have already had the experience of negotiating agreements. The Scenic Shores Neighborhood Association intends on drawing from the experience of the other associations as well as seeking the help of the Lake Worth Alliance.
Even if you don't have mineral rights, the location and quality of drill sites will affect YOU. We are all in this together. Together, we can make sure that the drilling remains a benefit to Fort Worth.
