A group of seven homeowners associations,a church and about 50 individual homeowners all in Colleyville, have banded together to try and lease their mineral rights.
They're calling their group the Colleyville Area Mineral Rights Association. It includes:
- Oak Brook Hills
- Pebble Hill
- Warwick Park
- Western Trails
- Williamsburg Estates (See our previous blog post)
- Crown of Life Lutheran Church
Grady Walker, a spokesperson for CAMRA, said the group includes about 1,000 acres, some of which spill over into Southlake as well. Dale Resources and Petrocasa Energy have a total about six well sites that would touch the homes within CAMRA, Walker said.
The group's rough boundaries go from Continental Boulevard on the north to Tinker Road on the south, and the intersection of Highway 26 at John McCain Road on the east to Davis Boulevard in Keller in the west. The boundaries take in the Williamsburg Estates neighborhoods along John McCain that we've previously blogged on.
Some individual homeowners signed offers last year, Walker said, but he's hoping to add to the group's size. There are about three other homeowners associations that could join the group, he said.
