Yard of the Month

We hope neighbors have enjoyed viewing the recent White Lake Hills Yard's of the Month.

In July, the yard at 613 Green River Trail was highlighted. The owners had worked tirelessly to restore the

front yard when they moved here in 2013. The front had suffered from lack of care and water. They have planted, replanted and watered until now have finally re-established a healthy landscape. Deborah is a

tireless gardener, as the flourishing green of her back garden will also attest.

In August, 5008 Granite Shoals was the featured Yard. This is a well-maintained and attractive yard,

which gives welcome to the front entrance to the house. The sculptured greenery is inter-mixed with frothy

ferns and contrasting elephant ears. The greens give a cooling summer picture with whimsical statuary also

featured against the white background of the house. Terry says they have enjoyed working on the front, and also try to keep it attractive for the neighbors.

September's Yard of the Month is at 1013 Lake Charles Ave. Elizabeth the recipient, is a long time resident of WLH. She has enjoyed over 40 years of actively gardening in her yard. She loves her

neighborhood and it is important for her to always keep her yard properly maintained. She sets a good

example by keeping it neat and tidy, and is proud to have been recognized for her care of her surroundings. We are pleased to have special people like Elizabeth whose landscape can be

depended on for good upkeep.

President's Letter by Fred Fernandez

Well, summer is soon coming to an end. We are fortunate that it has been a mild and mostly wet one. Our WLHNA Fall Festival is coming up on October 7th. Please refer to the article in this newsletter for more information. We can always use volunteers during the event for everything from set up to clean up, so if you're available and want to help, please contact Linda Fulmer and let her know. We all owe a big thank you to Linda and her planning committee for all that they do to enrich our community. They carry on the kind of leadership that White Lake Hills has been so fortunate to have for so many years, and they represent the best of our community, and of the city of Fort Worth. We are so fortunate that they live here.

Don't forget, National Night Out is coming up on Tuesday, October 3. Now is the time for block captains to organize your individual block parties and plan for your neighborhood get-togethers.

WLH garage sale is planned for October 15th, refer to a posting in this newsletter for more information. In case you haven't heard, it's official. Wallace Hall has received his standard permit from the TCEQ to operate a concrete crusher on First Street. It's at the same location that applied for a change in zoning from the city of Fort Worth last year. Mr. Hall decided to go to the TCEQ first for his permit. I understand he hired a top-notch attorney specializing in environmental issues such as this. His one year restriction for reapplication for a zoning change will expire soon. He obviously thinks his interest outweighs our better interest or just doesn't care. So expect to see this issue come back around again this year. I hope we are all prepared to have our voices heard again, and that our city government is prepared to stand firm to protect our better interest well into the future.

On a happier note, JLB Contractors has recently agreed to sign a compromise agreement limiting production for a cement batch plant operation. In return for this agreement, several requests for a contested hearing have been withdrawn. I, as president of Neighborhoods of East Fort Worth Alliance, and Mike Dean a board member of The Historic Randall Mill's Valley Alliance (THRMVA), worked with Sam Davis, President of JLB Construction, LLC to form this agreement. That agreement was finalized and officially signed last week by Sam Davis, Bob Horton, president THRMVA, Mike Dean, past vice president and current board member, and myself of NEFWNA. This agreement stands on its own merits, separate from the TCEQ permit, to limit production at substantially lower production levels. I offer my sincere thanks to Mr. Sam Davis, Mike Dean for his exceptional effort, and Bob Horton for his contribution to the final agreement.

If you haven't been attending our quarterly association meetings or haven't volunteered for any of our activities, I want to encourage you to become an active member of this community. I think you will like the people you get to know, make friends, be in the know of "goings on", and enjoy time with your neighbors.
