Needless to say, we were not very happy!
Too many fun memories in our neighborhood of roasting marshmallows on bonfires or just clearing out the brush, shooting our guns, popping firecrackers and so much more that will come under the laws of the city as illegal if we should get annexed.
This all started because a section of homes that are on the same water system as we are thought it would be a good idea to get city water brought into the neighborhood. They had a private home owners meeting and invited the city manager to consider the annexation plan.
Afterwards, the other homes that are affected received a letter stating that we were a part of the plan and that we would get city water (yuck), trash service and eventually street improvement.
I know several neighbors that will also have to make changes in the way they do life, park their RVs, raise animals other than dogs and cats, place their propane tanks. Some people, if not all, will loose part of their yard as the city is talking about coming in and widening roads and taking that land to use.
We are not interested and know several of our neighbors that feel the same way. I know there is a petition that will be available at the meeting on Monday night for those in favor so I have setup a petition to gather signatures from home owners that do not agree that live on Lamberth road that is a part of Lamberth Estates, Carriage Circle, and the non Sherman side of Shady Oaks Lane.
We need to let our voice be heard!
