    After being told earlier this month that it would not receive a promised tax incentive from the city after all, the developer of the controversial Hotel Renovo planned near the Kimbell Art Museum on Camp Bowie Boulevard is pulling the plug on the project.

    Mayor Pro Tem Dennis Shingleton, whose District 7 includes the planned hotel site, said the mayor and City Council lost confidence that Illinois-based Heart of America Group could develop a four-star hotel.

    The Kimbell argued against the hotel’s initial design, contending that the planned height would “loom” over its property, affecting in particular an interior courtyard that features a famous sculpture.

    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.
