Description

Urban Villages are small geographic areas (usually one square mile) zoned for dense, multiple-use development that is mass-transit and pedestrian friendly: parks, businesses, entertainment, homes, and stores, all within walking distance of each other in an area that emphasizes the culture and heritage of those who call it home - a city within a city. The City of Fort Worth is working with developers, business groups, and neighborhood associations to revitalize older commercial districts using capital improvements, mixed-use zoning, and economic incentives to help urban villages throughout the central city. Come learn how the work is progressing!
