Vote in favor of the Firestone Robertson new distillery development and zoning change.
This petition made change with 1,559 supporters!
The Glen Garden Golf Club has been marketed for sale for over two years. The owners of the club have been personally managing and financially supporting the Club’s operation for 10 years and want to retire. Yet, the owners have been unable to attract any golf operators to buy it. Recently, the owners contracted to sell the property to the Firestone & Robertson Distilling Co. for the development of a state of the art whiskey distillery and event venue. The new distillery and campus will feature numerous public attractions including serene indoor and outdoor event spaces including an existing lake and scenic views of downtown Fort Worth. The new use of the property will create an extraordinary environment for weddings, charity, corporate, concert and other private and public events. Additionally, there is the possibility that the new campus will be able to feature several golf holes from the existing course.
To build its new distillery campus, Firestone & Robertson must get the property rezoned. Those that oppose this rezoning are averse to change and unwilling to acknowledge the project’s clear economic development benefits of tourism, jobs, and tax revenue that the business will bring the city and immediate community.
WE NEED YOUR HELP!
The Fort Worth City Council will meet on Tuesday, July 15th at 7pm to vote on this rezoning matter. There are 4 ways you can help:
