The Barnett Shale Blog has caught wind of efforts to organize South Arlington homeowners in the neighborhoods west of Matlock Road, north of Arbrook, east of South Cooper Street, and south of Mayfield Road. This is just west of SEAPO and CAPO territory.
Organizers have scheduled a meeting, 7 p.m.-9 p.m. April 15 at the Mount Olive Church, 1200 Highpoint Road, Arlington. A flier being distributed in the neighborhoods reads: "Please do not sign a lease until you attend this meeting, Our neighbors directly across Matlock are signing for...$25,000 per acre with Carrizo Oil and Gas Co."
These neighborhoods began receiving offers months ago. We're trying to reach the organizers. More information as we get it.
