To address Fort Worth’s unprecedented growth and the challenges that come along with it, the City Council will call for a bond election in May 2018. If approved by voters, the bond package would provide funding to build new roads and repair existing ones; add new park amenities, community centers and public safety facility improvements; and replace an aging library.
A new video provides an introduction to the bond process and mentions some of the priorities for the proposed bond election.

The belief is 'better block makes better neighbors'. And a better local economy. A better block includes more local business, more time outdoors, more beauty, more life. It offers more pathways and protections for bicycles and pedestrians. It encourages more engagement and connection with those in the neighborhood.Better cities start with better blocks.

The Tarrant Transit Alliance has been formed to advocate for better transit in Tarrant County. The focus of the alliance will be to educate the public and elected officials about the benefits of transit.
It was formed on the belief that investment in transportation infrastructure, particularly public transit, drives growth.
Better transit attracts development and increases property values along its corridors. It connects restaurants to diners, landlords to renters, families to local stores, and employers to employees.
