The Loss of Valuable Mont Del Residents

An appeal from Neil “Duck Man” Andrews, who lovingly watches over and cares for our ducks:

Please get serious about containing your dogs and either stop letting them come and go as they please or fix your fences and gates.  This is coming from an avid dog lover who was confronted by a large dog at the duck pond Tuesday attempting to check for a tag. It became extremely aggressive and charged him twice very viciously. Luckily, Neil was not bitten but he was terrified. Neil is convinced the last 2 maulings and killings of the black flightless ducks at the pond this summer was a dog killing. Please do not let your dogs run free unless you accompany them and they are responsive to commands.

Emergency Access Bridge

Dear neighbors, here are the presentations the city put out regarding the emergency access bridge.

On October 2nd, The City Counsel Discussed:

  1. Expressed their support and intent to pursue a 1-lane, 15-foot wide, gated emergency access bridge.  Simply stated, the physical design of the emergency access bridge would preclude public use.
  2. Asked staff to develop and distribute an informational piece regarding emergency response times and the emergency access bridge project for distribution to the public.
  3. Supported entering into an agreement with Fort Worth and TXDOT to "lock down" emergency access only.  The parameters of the agreement:  Benbrook and Fort Worth would jointly meet with TXDOT to request that TXDOT grant an easement (or other instrument) for an emergency access bridge to Fort Worth.  Fort Worth then would grant a license for Benbrook’s use of Fort Worth’s easement (or other instrument) to construct and operate a single lane emergency access bridge.  Again, this is an additional layer to lock this down but the physical design of the emergency access bridge would preclude public use. 
  4. Determine a date/time to meet with the Mont Del HOA.



As soon as I have some more time, I will update the neighborhood web map with the designs outlined in these presentations.
