Accomplishments of CCNA
Updated: Sep 24, 2019
Over our 20 plus years some of our accomplishments have been:
• Defeating multi-family several times from establishing in the Chapel Creek Blvd. area to protect our property values and to discourage vacant lands from becoming established with “C” multi family at the bequest and desire of the community at large and existing property owners
• Acquiring 21 acres of dedicated Park Land Chuck Silcox City Park . We completed Phase 1 development in 2012 and are currently advocating for continued amenities. We are sponsoring a 501C3 " Friends of Chuck Silcox Park " with desire to acquire grants and individual funding for future development of the park.
• Lobbying for better and safer roadway conditions. Chapel Creek Blvd. has had many improvements over the years due to our efforts and in July 2017 a new 6 lane Chapel Creek Bridge began construction and was completed July 2019. Although there are some getting use to issues we are still working on concerns regarding lane markings.
• We have continued our lobby with TXDOT & NCTCOG for needs for I-30 widening and improvements for improved mobility for neighborhood. Currently lobbying for alternate access arterial connections to be included with future expansion planning for I-30 at Hwy 580 alignment and at Longview bridge area. This to alleviate all traffic flow directed solely to Chapel Creek Blvd.
• Proactive involvement in City of Fort Worth issues such as zoning, trash, animal control, code enforcement issues and future city development plans in our area.
• We negotiate Gas Mineral leases in our neighborhood for those that had their minerals rights in 2008 which and yielded us a $ 53 K gift to our initial phase one Chuck Silcox
• Chapel Creek NA has interacted and assisted on behalf of our property owners on many issues. Recently with property owners facing a deteriorating wall along Chapel Creek Blvd. Deemed their responsibility. CCNA negotiated agreement with City of Fort Worth for property owners to be able to replace brick wall which would have been prohibitively costly with cedar fence instead . City also agreed to free waivers and to help with debris haul off at no cost to property owners.
• Negotiated an agreement with Waste Management for their planned Transfer Station to our West to control possible nuisance problems such as sodor or noise. We remain active on Waste Managements citizens advisory committee.
• Promoting neighborhood events such as our National Night Out. Educate and inform our neighbors on issues before our local and state government that might affect us through our newsletters, web site and social Nextdoor site.
• Promote participation and partnership in our community Crime Watch and Westpoint / Chapel Creek Citizens on Patrol Code Blue and Crime Watch to advocate for a safe neighborhood
• Promote a feeling of community through regular meetings, opportunities for participation, and neighborhood sponsored events.
• We started our Chapel Creek Nextdoor site as soon as it was available in Fort Worth to assist our residents to stay connected and as a way to keep our finger on pulse of neighborhood and community's needs
