CODE: L TYPE: CONSENT PUBLIC HEARING: NO
SUBJECT:  

Authorize Joint Ordinance and ETJ Release Agreement with the City of Willow Park to Adjust the Extraterritorial Jurisdictions between the Cities of Fort Worth and Willow Park for 149.78 Acres of Land (FUTURE COUNCIL DISTRICT 3)


RECOMMENDATION:

It is recommended that the City Council:

1. Approve the attached Joint Ordinance and ETJ Agreement between the Cities of Fort Worth and Willow Park; and

2. Authorize the Mayor to execute the attached Joint Ordinance and ETJ Release Agreement.

 
DISCUSSION:

Halff Associates, Inc., representing George Beggs Trust and Boswell Interests, Ltd., contacted staff and requested a meeting between the City of Fort Worth and the City of Willow Park to discuss the release of certain extraterritorial boundaries between the two cities to facilitate the development of the trust properties. The property is located west of FM 3325 and Walsh Ranch, north of IH-30 and east of Willow Park city limits. The property owner is proposing a single family development that will be in Willow Park's extraterritorial jurisdiction (ETJ), once the boundary adjustment is approved. The 74.89 acres shown as Tract 1, Exhibit A, will be released from Fort Worth's ETJ and accepted into Willow Park's ETJ. The 74.89 acres shown as Tracts 2 and 3, Exhibit A, will be released from Willow Park's ETJ and accepted into Fort Worth's ETJ.

The request is running concurrently with a request to authorize the execution of uniform wholesale water contracts with the Cities of Willow Park and Hudson Oaks. Other than providing wholesale water to Willow Park, Fort Worth will not be responsible for municipal services or infrastructure for the proposed residential subdivision. Access for the subdivision will be through the City of Willow Park and its ETJ.

Section 42.023 of the Texas Local Government Code allows a municipality to release extraterritorial jurisdiction of the municipality if the municipality gives its written consent by ordinance. The purpose of these changes in the ETJ boundaries is to promote orderly development, public safety and effective delivery of municipal services. If the City Council approves the proposed ETJ release, the ordinance will be executed between the Cities of Fort Worth and Willow Park.

The proposed boundary adjustment is located in Fort Worth's extraterritorial jurisdiction and FUTURE COUNCIL DISTRICT 3.

This contract will be with a governmental entity, state agency or public institution of higher education: City of Willow Park.
