The owners of Hunter Ranch and Cole Ranch have proposed to build 15,000 homes where about 50 active gas wells continue to produce.  

The Denton Drilling Awareness Group is organizing a public meeting about the distance between existing gas wells and schools, hospitals and other protected uses on Sept. 22. 

The meeting will include presentations from Texas scientists who have conducted gas well monitoring and remediation projections, including Zacariah Hildenbrand, professor at the University of Texas-Arlington, and Kevin Schug. 

The meeting begins at 2 p.m. in the meeting room at North Branch Library, 3020 N. Locust St.
