Fort Worth Launches 2050 Comprehensive Plan with community focus

Fort Worth, Texas – The City of Fort Worth is beginning a major endeavor to plan its future through 2050. Fort Worth wants the input from local residents to making a long-term development plan. With a focus on improving the quality of life for all its community members, the city has announced the development of the 2050 Comprehensive Plan, a roadmap that will guide Fort Worth’s growth and development over the next three decades.

The 2050 Comprehensive Plan attempts to represent what the people of Fort Worth want for the future by focusing on the need for active, walkable neighborhoods, a variety of housing choices, busy business districts, and extensive parks and open spaces. The plan also aims to improve public safety, transportation and transit choices, as well as enhance community-building through libraries and other facilities. The goal of this project is to protect Fort Worth’s unique culture and character, which the city sees as important part for its future success and popularity.

The engagement campaign starts on April 11 with a workshop at the Handley Meadowbrook Community Center.
