I recently noticed the landscaped median along Camp Bowie from the Ridglea Theater down to 6333.
Big thumbs up !!!
The landscaping looks great

Would love for the city to do the same thing on Camp Bowie all the way down to the Modern Art museum.

You are going to be waiting a while for the city to do it.  I'm willing to bet that it has all been done by the Camp Bowie District.

Maintenance is expensive.  High maintenance landscaping looks good going in, but without lots of $$$ it ends up looking like crap.  Even "grass" takes a lot of care.  Look at the ugly, weedy medians in the brick parts.

Prior to median repair near the museums, how about some road repair?  I can't understand why the roads surrounding our "crown jewels" of the culture portion of Cowboys and Culture is so dumpy.

 

The medians down near Ridglea are how the entire street should look.  The ones north of I-30 are nicely maintained for grass, but look somewhat dumpy.  Also, the lights in the median provide horrible lighting for the sidewalks, which has none.  And it makes the street seem dark and unsafe for pedestrians.

Not to mention the 7th/university/CB intersection is impossible to cross without jaywalking. You just get a red hand the entire time, even if you push the buttons. It's not a big deal but I'm sure but for example if I was making a safe cross and was stopped by a cop I'd be upset.

Check the City website over the coming months. I heard in a breakfast meeting recently that the City is planning to use the same public forum software that DFWI recently used, to gather citizen opinions on the priorities for the upcoming bond package.
