Central Arlington Heights Property Acquisition & Drainage Improvements

Update on the voluntary property acquisition project to acquire flood prone properties on Western and Carleton between Bryce and El Campo: In the June 18, 2019 City Council meeting, recommendations presented for the voluntary acquisition of 4 properties in the Central Arlington Heights neighborhood using City Stormwater Management funding was approved. Throughout this voluntary acquisition project, staff has maintained ongoing communication with additional property owners in the area who also may be interested in participating in voluntary property acquisition. Results of this ongoing communication appears to indicate additional voluntary property acquisitions may be forthcoming and presented to City Council in August 2019. City Council does not meet during the month of July. The June 18 Council decision will be posted on this page after the meeting. In addition, 2 other properties on Western Ave have qualified for the use of Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) grant funding for voluntary property acquisition. The administrative process for receiving funding is ongoing and upon confirmation of funding, staff will coordinate the appraisals and upon receipt of the completed appraisals, offers will be made to the property owners. We have received petitions from residents throughout the Arlington Heights community objecting to the voluntary acquisition project and are continuing to listen to concerns as we develop recommendations for future property use. City staff appreciates the thoughts, opinions and input shared throughout this voluntary property acquisition project and our efforts are committed to working with all involved to optimize the outcome for all stakeholders. If you have any questions regarding this project, contact Project Manager Mike Bennett with the City of Fort Worth at 817-392-7891 or mike.bennett@fortworthtexas.gov. <a href="http://fortworthtexas.gov/files/2f2be581-a451-437f-b97e-96d7269a9d53.pdf">Read more FAQs</a> Council District: District 7.
