The initial proposal was significantly altered in an attempt to garner the approval of the 1% who run this town. When they pulled their approval for even this modest plan, the streetcar was dead. My guess is the Magnolia expansion being fast tracked is what prompted the scuttling of the whole thing. Nothing happens here without the 1% approval. That's the big difference between Fort Worth and Dallas- Fort Worth is small enough to be dominated by a very few.
This closure was the topic of a discussion of the bicycle and pedestrian advisory committee meeting last night. (The main contentious topic for discussion was the bike rental situation.) I am trying to find out what was discussed about the trail and will report back.
Shame on those who put their protectionist self-interests ahead of the City's future.
Unfortunately, those very few who control this City are the same ones who always put their self-interestes ahead of the City's future. That saying about Fort Worth being a City that feels like a small town? This is a City that runs like a small town.
