...and the amount of cars in the area....I was starting to brainstorm on solutions and one literally popped into view as I was trying to turn onto Lancaster.
The solution. The Farrington Field Parking lot
....The city would just need to create better crosswalks for pedestrians to make it safe, but I think it may be a quick and immediate fix. maybe even build a parking garage with a pedestrian bridge across Lancaster from the garage and the garage could include some ground floor retail along Lancaster.
Yes, your brainstorming would actually make sense, except that one, Farrington Field is the property of FWISD; and two, more problematic is that Farrington Field may have in its hand over to FWISD, some restrictions that bar the property from being used beyond any school related purposes.
