Update on Home Acquisitions for Flood Control on Western and Carleton Avenues

August 7, 2019 · Filed Under Events and News 

Dear Arlington Heights Leaders,

· FEMA has issued the Public Notice regarding the acquisition of the 2 FEMA
grant properties. The City has posted the notice on the City website @

· The City of Fort Worth has come to a purchase agreement with two of the other
non-FEMA grant properties that have been participating in the voluntary property
acquisition initiative. These properties will go before City Council for approval
of the acquisition. We anticipate the properties going before City Council in late
August and will provide a follow-up communication when that date is firmed up.

· The City is continuing to discuss future use of the acquired properties per the
discussions between the City Manager, Council Member Dennis Shingleton and
concerned residents on June 14th.

Thank you,
