They will use eminent domain alright, but it will be to take the land from either the church or the home owners. The time frame is long and in favor of energy corporations and the city government. While unlike corporations (that are considered as people but have an indeterminant life span), life situations will change for the real people involved and the property will change hands. There are far too many politicians in the pockets of the oil and gas companies for Chesapeake Energy to even worry. It would not surprise me in the least if we find out that Chesapeake and developers planned it from the start. That is a beautiful area of town with a nice view of downtown. Real estate developers will buy up the parcels that are left, after Chesapeake Energy’s needs are satisfied, to build high-end town homes that are sound proofed with no yards. You gotta know Calvary is a target because a hotel on that property would provide a lot more tax revenue for Fort Worth.
