What's it to be?

Wednesday, April 9th, at 6:30 is a night when Flower Mound history will be made.

Why? The O&G Board of Appeals will hear requests from Red Oak Gas Drilling for seven variances in the Town's O&G ordinance for the proposed Riverwalk development. These requests are to seek decreases to the setbacks for all of the following:

**Environmentally Sensitive Area
**Public park
**Property line
**Tank battery
**Storage tank

But why will this night be historical? Other variances to the O&G ordinance have been approved, right?

Yes, but never before in the middle of town.

Never in a location which would bring hundreds of 80,000 pound trucks down our streets to compete with moms picking up kids from school, teenagers heading to Sonic for a cherry limeade and dads rushing to the ballfield just in time for the kickoff.

Is this what we want for Flower Mound?

Make your voice heard on Wednesday night.

It matters.
