Fort Worth’s Newest Real Estate Development – The Camp Crucis Development

The Camp Crucis development is the most recent of Fort Worth’s real estate developments.
This community offers a variety of housing options and is also home to some of Fort Worth’s
most popular businesses, including the Episcopal Diocese and AMA Granbury Ranch and
Cattle, LLC. The project has also attracted the attention of horse lovers who want to be close
to the action of the Fort Worth Stock Show. Located on Camp Crucis Court, the neighborhood
is known for its horse stables and Farina’s Winery & Cafe.

An upcoming development near the Lipan Highway and the Granbury Regional Airport will be
known as Camp Crucis. The 163-acre retreat is a ministry of The Episcopal Diocese of Fort
Worth, a Bible-believing Anglican fellowship. It is the first development in the area of this size
and is expected to include a variety of amenities. The project will be built around a winery
owned by Gary Farina, who lives on the site.
Episcopal Diocese of Fort Worth
The Episcopal Diocese of Fort Worth is set to hold its next Convention on September 27, and
the Presiding Bishop has issued a Notice of Special Meeting. This meeting, which is called by
Bishop Schori in consultation with the Steering Committee of faithful Episcopalians, will elect a
provisional bishop, elect members of a standing committee, elect members to the executive
council, and adopt a budget. It will also consider resolutions on recent purported amendments
to the constitution and canons.
Bishop Patterson’s episcopate came during a time of turmoil and controversies in the church.
His policies were principled, but unpredictable. He faced a diocese that was reduced to three
dioceses, and then split in two, with the western half of the diocese created
. He was a
traditionalist and did not support the ordination of women and the Cursillo Movement, and
faced a number of controversies.
The Trustees of the Diocese of Fort Worth are composed of members of the clergy and lay
persons who are members in good standing of the Diocese. A majority of the Elected Trustees
shall elect a Chairman of the Board, who shall have all rights of a bishop. The Board of
Trustees shall meet annually to elect officers. At the Annual Convention, the Bishop will
nominate the Trustees.
Camp Crucis
The City Council unanimously approved the preliminary plat for the Camp Crucis development,
but not before several residents and local churches expressed concern about the project.

Many residents in the area have concerns about the impact of the project on Camp Crucis,
which is a 74-year-old retreat center and ministry of the Episcopal Diocese of Fort Worth. In
addition to the housing development, the City Council heard comments from Community
Development Director Kira Wauwie and City Attorney Jeremy SoRelle.
The Episcopal Diocese of North Texas, which owns the record title to the Camp Crucis
development, asserted that the Church camp is an actual place of religious worship under the
Texas Constitution and Revised Civil Statutes. As such, the development was exempt from
state taxation. In addition to allowing the church to continue its use of the property, the
Episcopal Diocese of North Texas will provide additional funds to build new facilities.
Horse stables
Unity Stables offers a wide variety of horses to suit all levels of riding ability. The horses are
current or former competitors with a variety of show records. All owners must agree to follow

the Stables Manager’s guidelines for the care of their horses. The facility is smoke-free with
the exception of the picnic area and parking lot. In addition, smoking is prohibited in the trails
and round pens.
Upon arrival, boarders must clean up their horses and any trash, including muck rakes. Lead
ropes, halters, and other items must be stored in designated tack sheds. Owners are not
allowed to modify pens without the approval of the Stables Manager. Stable gates must be
closed and latched at all times. Loading and unloading horses in the paved parking lot is
prohibited.
Exemption from ad valorem taxation
The trial court concluded that the burden of proving that a parcel of property is a religious
place is on the claimant. Although the open-air chapel is a legitimate place of worship and the
minister’s residence is exempt, the remaining one hundred fifty-three acres are not. This
decision has significant implications for future Texas taxation. The state must carefully
consider whether it should provide an exemption.

The discount may increase the net operating income of an affordable housing development
while improving the value of the property. Additionally, it may enhance refinancing
opportunities for existing residents. Ultimately, an ad valorem discount reduces property taxes
by up to 50%. In some cases, the appraiser may be induced to increase the assessed value by
as much as 10%, as long as the value is lower than a homestead.
Although a camp’s purpose may include some aspect of religion, it is not a place of religious
worship. This section merely states what is an “actual place of worship.” It does not list a
number of other requirements that a religious organization must meet in order to qualify for an
exemption.
For example, Camp Crucis does not operate under a national organization, and it
is not under a state or federal agency of similar character.
Impact on existing camper program
One of the first questions asked by the overnight camp director was whether the summer camp
was taking joint custody of their son. It was evident from their conversations that the child was
homesick and not doing well at camp. In addition, the COVID outbreak forced camp sessions
to be longer than normal. Fortunately, the camper made it through the first week, but then
began exhibiting unsafe behaviors and running away from the group. He also stopped listening
to the staff.
Despite these concerns, the staffing shortage may have played a part in increasing the
prevalence of active supervision this summer. The absence of staffing can result in dangerous
situations, including camper-to-camper abuse. Without proper supervision, the absence of
boundaries among staff could result in inappropriate grooming, touching and conversations. In
this case, the staff’s inaction could lead to even more serious incidents.

Staff must be properly trained to deal with sensitive issues and be aware of the rights of both
parents. In addition, they should be aware of the policies and procedures to be followed if their
child is expelled from camp. This is important, because parents may not want to share that
information. And some parents are so rigid that they want the camp to deal with every
problem. In addition, the staff should also be aware of local laws that pertain to custody
issues.
