With vision, the City of Fort Worth could capitalize from the Hurricane Katrina tragedy by marketing a community revitalization project that is already in place on the city’s near southeast side. Fort Worth should welcome and encourage displaced New Orleaneans to relocate and establish a New Orleanesque community replete with cafes, music and culture to the Evans and Rosedale Enterprise Zone.

I believe that the establishment of Fort Worth’s “Little New Orleans” would be a tremendous asset to Fort Worth. As I see it now, the Evans and Rosedale Enterprise Zone is languishing and this could certainly become a catalyst for creating something dynamic for a depressed sector of the city.

That's a fabulous idea. But that area isn't just languishing, it's festering.

This looks like an excellent addition to the revitalization efforts in the historic Near Southside:




As the article states Christo Rey is a nationwide project that originated, serves students of all denominations, and stresses college readiness over the standardized testing that drives most public schools. Work-study internships are an integral part of the program and the school is looking for local businesses to partner with.
