Fort Worth: Large crowd shares their thoughts on Northside neighborhood improvements
More than 200 people, including residents from the Northside neighborhood and city leaders and staff, attended a community meeting to discuss improvements and revitalization projects in the works for the area.
Improvements are now underway to make the Northside neighborhood cleaner and safer as part of a $3.05 million program funded by the City Council.
The next community event will be a City Resources Workshop at 6:30 p.m. Feb. 28 at the Northside Community Center, 1100 N.W. 18th St. Discover free city programs that can help with home repairs, income tax preparation, utility and water payment assistance and more. Workshops will be conducted in English and Spanish, and refreshments will be provided.
These activities are part of a yearlong strategy to increase public safety, improve public infrastructure, expand community engagement, promote economic revitalization and provide supportive services to reduce poverty and increase self-sufficiency. Funding for the neighborhood improvement program comes from a ½-cent allocation of the municipal property tax rate to provide capital projects, improve public safety and attract private investment in underserved neighborhoods.
