Large crowd learns more about Lower Bois d’Arc Creek Reservoir Comprehensive Plan

It was standing-room-only Monday, August 29 at the South Annex in Bonham as concerned residents filled the Fannin County Court-at-Law chambers to learn more about the Lower Bois d’Arc Creek Reservoir Comprehensive Plan.

One purpose of the public meeting was to review the draft plan being devised to guide future development in a 5,000-foot buffer zone surrounding the proposed 16,526-acre Lower Bois d’Arc Creek Reservoir.

“What do the residents of the county want this lake to look like?” was how Daniel Harrison, project manager for Freese and Nichols described the process.

Freese and Nichols is the consulting firm hired by North Texas Municipal Water District to help the county’s zoning board comprised of Fannin County Judge Spanky Carter (chairman), Gary Fernandes, David Johnson, Dustin Knight and Bob McCraw plan for the ramifications of a project of this scope.
