The 360 Northwest Coalition (group website) formed in earnest around mid to late February with eight subdivisions along the west side of Dallas/Fort Worth Airport near State Highway 360 and Glade Road.
But the group purposefully stayed below the radar for the past few months as it tried to get its leadership infrastructure in place.
Now, the group is announcing that it has added five more neighborhoods. They are:
- Glade Crossing
- Glade Landing
- Meadowbrook Park Addition
- Shadow Glen Addition
The 360 Northwest Coalition, which now consists of 3,000 residential and commercial properties on 750 acres, has its particular name because the group is essentially located at the northwest end of S.H. 360, where it merges with State Highway 121.
So far, the group only has offers from Cimmaron, working on behalf of Chesapeake Energy. The first offer, which came in December, was for a per-acre bonus of $3,000 and royalties of 20 percent, said Dan Delph, the lead organizer of 360 Northwest.
In March, Cimmaron upped its bonus offer to $6,500.
Delph, who retired last year as a software designer for Southlake-based Sabre, said his group is still focusing on registering members in the area and will deal with negotiating with the land company a little later. The group will wrap up registration efforts in two weeks and then will form an executive negotiating team that will deal with the lease offers then, Delph said.
Now that it has a "critical mass of neighborhood groups," 360 Northwest is now trying to bring in commercial properties and any other nearby individual homeowners who may not be part of a subdivision or homeowners association.
Here's a look at the original founding members of 360 Northwest Coalition:
- Arbormont Estates
- Chelsea Park Estates
- Cinnamon Ridge
- Glade Manor Addition
- Mel Village Addition
- Northgate Addition
- Quail Run Estates
- Sagepoint Addition
