Wednesday night's O&G Board of Appeals meeting

Tomorrow night (Wednesday, the 15th, 6:30pm at Town Hall) the O&G Board of Appeals will consider variances to the setback requirements for two proposed gas wells in the far western portion of Flower Mound. The property is a 371 acre tract, which is located north of 1171, west of Red Rock Lane, south of Freeman Road, and east of Tour 18.

According to the Town's assigned case manager, there are several variances that are being requested including variances to environmentally sensitive areas, upland habitats, and property lines.

In addition, there is one residence that is located less than 1,000 feet from the proposed drill site. The case manager stated that the residence is approximately 950 feet from the site and that the homeowner has written a letter and has also called the Town indicating his support for the well.

Public comments will be taken at the beginning of the meeting (these should be general in nature.) Then, if you wish to speak specifically about these variance requests, you can do that later in the meeting.

Personally, I believe that this application is one which doesn't meet the "highly residential area" criteria, and as such should probably be permitted.

Your thoughts?

I was out of town for business and couldn't attend the meeting. How did it go? Can anyone give a brief report?
