cool.gif I hope I don't offend anyone, but i feel like our city is holding back when it comes to growth. I know some want to keep Fort Worth slowed-down but, this is starting to become a difficult task. The city is growing rapidly and i feel personally that we should let it take its course in doing that. I'm a young man and I get tired of having to drive 33 miles down I-30 to find what I'm looking for. I still feel like this city can grow and keep it's western culture. I can understand why some people may feel the way they do about growth in this city but, I feel like we can benefit more from letting it grow. It's the only way this city is gonna get on the map and get the bigtime exposure. The cowboys are coming to tarrant county soon and I don't want tarrant county's biggest city to not be recognized. If you're mad at me, I apologize. If you're with me, I'm glad you understand where i'm coming from. K.L.

Welcome to the forum.

Not sure where you live exactly, but downtown I canít throw a paper airplane without hitting construction so I think youíre only going to have to wait just long enough for the cement to dry.

If you're wanting a sports venue, you're still going to have to drive a bit.

I feel your pain KL. I never saw any "REAL" Western Culture here in FW. Though it is often romanticized, I get more of a suburbia vibe. FW is folksy and wholesome. Artsy? Now I can see that image in this town. When I think of Western Culture soon to be lost, I think of Wyoming or places like Carson City, NV or New Mexico. FW will always continue to grow, especially with the Cowboys in our backyard and Big "D" nearby.

What exactly is the Western image to you? Where does one find it? Stockyards? Trust me, they will never go.

It's a "boots and suits" kind of town, and that's alright by me.

You've made a great point. I guess I'm just spoiled by whats going on in downtown dallas. That city is full of surprises. As i passed by on i-35e, i noticed they were building another high-rise structure in the victory park area. I thought they were pretty much done after the "W" hotel was completed. I guess i was wrong. I know it's not the city's fault that the block 82 tower and the 50 story tower was just a flux but, it sure would have been nice to see those two structures go up. Block 82 wasn't the best looking building but as far as considering a structure that tall for this city, i thought it was nice. I guess i'll keep my eyes open. thanks for responding. K.L.
