SEACTX (South East Arlington Communities) reports on its web site and in an email update that a couple of byproducts have sprung up from its effort to market a community gas lease: a crime watch and database of small business owners in the neighborhoods.
The group, which recently merged with the POSAR group of Southwest Arlington, says it's building a crime watch that will call for volunteers from every subdivision. Interested? You may send an email to the group at email@example.com.
The group also wants small business owners in the neighborhoods to let them know you are. "We will create a reference list...and post to the website, blog, and email to support our own community when we must spend that money for specific services," the group says. "We want to strive toward a tighter community, like it used to be." The group asks small business owners to respond to the same email address with your business and owner name, email, phone, and line of business.
SEACTX, which takes in 45 neighborhoods (visit the web site to see if your neighborhood is included) in far south Arlington from Texas 360 to U.S. 287, has also put a copy of the lease it's marketing on its web site. Among the terms it's looking for: a 30 percent royalty, structured to be free of post-production/transportation costs.
