The Fort Worth League of Neighborhoods is sponsoring a "gas drilling education event," 6:30 p.m. Oct. 23 at the University Christian Church, 2720 S. University Drive in Fort Worth. Here's the organization's pitch:
"Now that urban gas drilling has been a reality in our city for some time, what are the people saying who agreed to be in the first phases and currently have drilling underway in their neighborhood?
- Are they happy?
- Would they have made the same decision?
- Have the lease payments been worth it?
This event is designed to give you a balanced view of this issue and even provide you with a PowerPoint presentation you can take back to your neighborhood meetings...We will have industry experts, neighborhood leaders, City Council members presenting...So don't sign that lease just yet. You may want to know the rest of the story first!"
