I found a short article that touches on a few areas of interest that have been presented several times on this forum. The author seems to do a good job of summarizing and illustrating several aspects of an urban street grid system. These principles could be applied to a few different areas in Fort Worth, including opening up the street grid in some parts of Southside, redeveloping stagnant Malls such as Ridgmar, and could have been used to make the new Trinity / Chisholm developments more interesting and less suburban/sprawl-y.
