City of Arlington 2014 Annual Growth Profile Results void of relevant fracking info

We had our drunken shaleplay frack fest,
the hangover is here,
and the liver damage can be mitigated by detoxing our city now
not later.
UPDATE…Here is Mr Venables response in BOLDFACED lettering…he never did get back with me on the last question.

I am well, thanks.  I am still gathering the information to answer your last question.

 

Have a good weekend.

Thanks

Roger, how are you? Over the years I’ve been trying to see the strategic land use impact of our gas well padsites and only see a brief mention on this report.

Starting on page 39, what are the “Permit Type and Main Use” descriptions for gas well permits? There were 6 gaswell permits issued in 2014 mentioned on page 9. The six gas well permits mentioned on page 19 are only tracked via their associated zoning action – Specific Use Permit (SUP) for the Annual Growth Profile (AGP).  Appendix F (page 39) New Construction Non-Residential tracks commercial permits (CP). Gas Wells have their own permit type and are thus not tracked in the AGP.

For the Land Use Characteristics, how much of the vacant developable land percentage wise is adjacent to padsites?

More analysis is necessary to answer this question.

And for the 2.85% vacant undevelopable land, what percentage of that is actual padsites?

No vacant undevelopable land/parcels are padsites

The other question I have is what is the disposition of the lawsuit that the city was in from the Oil & Gas associations in trying to sue us for those Emergency response fees?  I do not know the status of the lawsuit.

The last question I have regarding that lawsuit is can you provide current royalty/tax income for current years?  Here is the snap shot of the prior years from defendant….

Thanks for your assistance.

Here is my comment to the city’s Annual Growth Profile

Over the years I’ve been trying to see the strategic land use impact of our gas well padsites and only see a brief mention on this report.

Starting on page 39, what are the “Permit Type and Main Use” descriptions for gas well permits? There were 6 gaswell permits issued in 2014 mentioned on page 9.

For the Land Use Characteristics, how much of the vacant developable land percentage wise is adjacent to padsites?

And for the 2.85% vacant undevelopable land, what percentage of that is actual padsites? It was comical to read the Zoning District Summaries that is completely void of the word “gas drilling” yet we have 54 padsites….that tickled me….others trying to grasp what the city allowed years from now won’t be so tickled especially when China buys out Chesapeake I predict.

Here are some highlighted in blue descriptions I noted as either funny or outrageous now that padsites are allowed in every Zoning District-yet not mentioned in this report….. Screen shot 2015-10-28 at 9.17.48 AM Screen shot 2015-10-28 at 9.18.34 AM Screen shot 2015-10-28 at 9.18.44 AM Screen shot 2015-10-28 at 9.20.41 AM Screen shot 2015-10-28 at 9.21.36 AM Screen shot 2015-10-28 at 9.21.58 AM

Here’s a suggestion, use that Tomorrow Fund money to fund a class action lawsuit of cities that cherished Home Rule Law against the state that allowed this one industry sector special privilege to trample. Take the state to court to overturn HB40 at the Supreme Court level. As a class-action suit, the cities would be exempt from the exposure in having to pay defendant’s atty fees as provided by HB274 if we as Plaintiff reject any fracker’s offer to settle and aren’t awarded as much as the settlement offer (by 80%).

Investing in some good legal help overturning HB40 to control our future land use from up to 900 more frackwells in Arlington is worth the money for the lawsuit.

Once we stop approving these drilling zones for existing sites, and not approve anymore new padsites will our Arlington’s liveability begin to be restored…..your goal to pack and stack’em is only bring more humanity in the Arlington’s-harms-way-airshed-of-potentially-thousand-of-storage-tanks-invisibly-venting-toxic-&-explosive-hydrocarbons-into-our-arished.

We need to cap those existing wells that have already petered out that now need those gaslift compressors. This includes the Truman site by the ATT Stadium whose wells went into production in April of 2013 and as of last May in 2015 are now getting their vigra gas lift compression.

We had our drunken shaleplay frack fest, the hangover is here, and the liver damage can be mitigated by detoxing our city now not later.

About Kim Triolo Feil

Since TX Statute 253.005 forbids drilling in heavily settled municipalities, I unsuccessfully ran for City Council Seat to try to enforce this. Since Urban Drilling, our drinking water has almost tripled for TTHM's. Before moving to Arlington in 1990, I lived in Norco’s “cancer alley”, a refinery town. It was only after Urban Drilling in Arlington did I start having health effects. After our drill site was established closest to my home, the chronic nosebleeds started. I know there are more canaries here in Arlington having reactions to our industrialized airshed (we have 55-60 padsites of gas wells). Come forward and report to me those having health issues especially if you live to the north/northwest of a drill site so I can map your health effects on this blog.
