In the works since 2005, a boundary adjustment between Benbrook and Fort Worth is now finalized. Under the agreement, Benbrook will receive over 1450 acres transferred as Extra Territorial Jurisdiction (ETJ), and approximately 100 acres will be transferred into Benbrook city limits. In exchange, Fort Worth will receive over 740 acres transferred to their ETJ, and about 40 acres into their city limits.
Since the first official meeting in 2005, representatives from both entities have worked off and on to reach an agreement of mutual interest. Benbrook staff prepared the initial draft Joint Ordinance in 2009, and final negotiations were finalized this month.
