In Topic: New elementary school for the Tanglewood area

05 September 2017 - 01:35 PM

I hate to be a downer here, but while I understand the issue for Tanglewood and overcrowding is important, I am not too keen on giving the elementary everyone wants to go to a new school with all the bells and whistles.  That money could be better spent on upgrading all elementary schools instead of just one.  Case in point, my wife and I voted for the bond that included universal Pre-K for all Fort Worth students and we were lucky enough for our son to start in FWISD's pre k last year. Come to find out, our home school didn't have room for him since we made too much money.  That wasn't a big deal at the time since we were able to find a spot for him at one of the schools close to where my wife works. But, we were one of the lucky ones that could find a spot close to us.  That problem needs addressing more so than Tanglewood.  If you live in an attendance zone of the elementary, you should be able to go to school there. If not, that school needs an expansion, not Tanglewood. We will not be voting for this bond, and I urge others to think about this as well before voting for it.  It doesn't seem right and it shouldn't be the priority of FWISD to serve a small segment of the school district over the needs of all those.

I live just four blocks west of that arena up by Stripling and would love to see some places go in.  Seems primed for development.

I am very curious to know the answer to this question, does anyone think this arena will bring some new eateries along Montgomery?  Taco Heads seems to be doing pretty well and Montgomery Street Cafe is fantastic, but only open with limited hours.

Don't mind this being my first post, but Dickies Arena will host DI NCAA Men's Tourney games in 2022. That's a big get for an arena that would normally focus on rodeo.
