On November 4, 2014, Fort Worth citizens will go to the polls to vote, among other things, on three user taxes proposed by the Fort Worth City Council to be used to help finance a proposed 14,000-seat multipurpose arena at the Will Rogers Complex, directly to the east of Arlington Heights.
In a conceptual site plan presented to the City Council on August 5, 2014 the arena is located on the southeast corner of Harley and Montgomery Streets, facing north on Gendy Street, which is proposed to become a linear pedestrian mall.
AHNA is gathering as much information as they can about the project. We are interested in hearing from property owners who live near Montgomery Street. If you haven’t already signed up, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to get on the list. Please include your property address.
The proposed arena and all of its ramifications on Arlington Heights will be the focus of AHNA’s membership meeting on Tuesday October 21 at 6:30 p.m. at the Fort Worth Firefighters Hall, 3855 Tulsa Way at Crestline Road.
The September/October 2014 AHNA newsletter has more information about the proposed arena and its financing. For more details, here are links to the City Council presentations and Star Telegram stories.

We are excited to present Kate Rugroden, Director of Special Projects for Bat World Sanctuary, as our guest speaker. Kate is a permitted wildlife rehabilitator through the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. She specializes in bats, opossums, and raccoons. She will bring live bats and will focus on common myths and misconceptions, different cultural perspectives, and the ways in which bats impact other life on Earth. After her presentation, she will answer questions about bats and other native wildlife.
Remember the series of burglaries in our neighborhood where the burglar came in through the doggie door? The police did an excellent job of tracking him down. Here’s the story:
