|Plans proposed to the City of Arlington, TX in June 2009|
Corner of South Hwy. 360 and Sublett Road
Fast forward three years to the present, June 2012...
Nine acres of undeveloped commercial property surround the Fulson Drill Site.
Unfortunately, they created an Achilles' heel for potential land development for this Arlington location. Even if someone wanted to develop this once, prime piece of commercial real estate, it is now covered in gas gathering pipelines, and you can't put a structure on top of gas pipelines.

We could have had this.
Finally, here is a letter that Chesapeake sent out to the Fish Creek neighbors in July of 2009:
"Chesapeake has recently learned of opposition to the Fulson drillsite from a development company whose property is adjacent to the property owned by Chesapeake. The development company feels that our drillsite hinders future development potential for their property."
During our conversation with this same Arlington land developer, he agreed with us 2000% [his words] that they [Chesapeake] damaged any future land development for this cornerstone of Arlington, Texas which at one point in time held such potential as an important gateway to our vibrant city.
