    Miscellaneous Information

The subject property is located on Old Granbury Road in southwest Fort Worth. The subject neighborhood can be described as a partially developed area in far Southwest Tarrant County. The boundaries of the subject neighborhood can be described as Dirks Road / Alta Mesa Boulevard to the north, Benbrook Lake to the west, Cleburne Road to the east, and F.M. 1187 to tile south. Portions of the neighborhood are inside the city limits of Fort Worth while the balance of the neighborhood is in unincorporated Tarrant County.

Access to the subject area is provided primarily by Old Granbury Road, which extends southwest of Fort Worth to the Johnson / Tarrant County Line. Columbus Trail, Hulen Street, Sycamore School Road, Risinger Road, and F.M. 1187 are all thoroughfares that provide travel to the subject area. Eventually, the Southwest Freeway will extend through the subject neighborhood, providing travel to central Fort Worth. Risinger Road will also be extended westward through the subject neighborhood.

The terrain of the subject neighborhood is level to gently sloping with scattered tree coverage. Public utilities are available in portions of the subject neighborhood via the city of Fort Worth. In addition, other public services, such as police and fire protection are available. The Crowley and Fort Worth Independent School Districts serve the subject neighborhood.

While there has not been any development activity immediately around the subject, it is important to note that there is a significant amount of single family residential development under way not far north of the subject. Several new residential subdivisions are under development on Columbus Trail. Also, two other new subdivisions have homes under construction on Dirks Road. Other residential development is under way or in the planning stages on Risinger Road east of tile subject, on South Hulen Street, and on Old Granbury Road between Alta Mesa and Columbus Trail. Over the past 5 to 7 years there have been many new subdivisions developed in southwest Fort Worth with these developments progressively extending further south. It is expected that this trend will continue, reaching the immediate area of the subject in the foreseeable future. In the process, additional roads will be extended through the area, increasing the accessibility to the subject property.
