#107969 Economic Development Plan

You know, I do not think in a Fort Worth versus Dallas world, I think in a Fort Worth and Dallas world.


 

 

(4) I can read into what you say about  Dallas v Fort Worth is that there exists a quantitative difference; and not a qualitative difference between the two cities.  I predicted such might have been your answer.

 

And I can that Fort Worth, step for step, has all the quality things to be had in Dallas; but that it has numerically less of them; not necessarily poorer or devoid.

 

 

 

 

You know, I do not think in a Fort Worth versus Dallas world, I think in a Fort Worth and Dallas world.

 

 

also, !!! Go Spurs Go !!!

 

Yes, Go Spurs Go!

There used to be a separate Fort Worth-Arlington MSA. I remember a lively discussion on this forum when the OMB proposed the change.

 

Fort Worth has the residential stuff locked up - We just need to attract more white collar employers (or another Lockeed Martin) downtown or west that actually is a vested member of the Fort Worth community (unlike AA).

 

Secondary, we need to stop being timid with pro sports and aggressively pursue all options as they are the best marketing - i.e. "Fort Worth Motor Speedway", "Fort Worth 500", "Fort Worth Open", "Fort Worth Stars"? :laugh:  If you are going to support the Dallas Cowboys, Dallas Mavericks and Dallas Stars then they should not be allowed to take you for granted.  :ninja:




#107442 Fort Worth should be thankful for...

...I'm thankful for a place like this forum to discuss said projects.




#107414 Two Fort Worth Forum Members In FW Inc. Magazine

Thanks again to both to you for what you do for the city. 

 

I learned about the website in 1997 after having a (unbeknownst to me at the time) conversation with Ed Bass.

 

I could have sworn that the original forum was around before 2000 (do I get credit for the post made before mandatory re-registration in 2004??? :swg: )




#107128 The Outlets at Alliance - Fort Worth

Posted by cjyoung on 06 November 2017 - 10:52 AM

I think it's just generic talk by generic people. Kinda like people who live in 76244 say they live in "Keller" and down south they live in "Crowley".




#107043 Arlington: Texas Live!

I do think Dallas will get a MLB team, National League through expansion or relocation from outside the state -- Rangers would not have left.

 

 

I would be shocked if that happens, unless by "Dallas" you mean Collin County. :smwink: "Arlington is too far for us to drive on a school night."




#106917 The Worth Residences (24 floors)

Great news. Things will look really different downtown in a few years.




#103248 Top Golf looking to expand in Fort Worth

If we could only get the Land O Lakes-Purina distribution center across the street moved up to Saginaw. :ninja:




#102444 New Will Rogers Arena

Posted by cjyoung on 18 April 2017 - 04:27 PM

Having NCAA tourney games is great. I hope we will dream a little bigger in the future and fight to steal an NBA or NHL team. If the leagues will only allow one per "market" then we should fight Dallas for their teams. :devil: Sounds far fetched to probably most of you, but the only constant in this world is change and it's only those who prepare for and adapt will survive will continue to thrive see Radio Shack, Arthur Andersen, Detroit, music distribution, etc.




#102024 TCU's run to the NIT title game

Posted by cjyoung on 31 March 2017 - 04:16 PM

Very impressive.  Congratulations to TCU.  However, I was really hoping for a TCU/UTA matchup in the final.

That would have been tough for me being a graduate of both universities.

 

Spent many hours this year cheering for both squads.

 

Great seasons for both!




#101964 TCU's run to the NIT title game

Posted by cjyoung on 29 March 2017 - 02:35 PM

Great to see the Frogs make it to the championship game of the NIT basketball tournament.

 

It's not the Final Four, but TCU is good as they've been in a long time and they are great representatives for Fort Worth, so go Frogs!

 

Kudos also to Texas Wesleyan for winning the NAIA National Championship!

 

The championship game vs Georgia Tech is tomorrow at 7 PM on ESPN.




#101681 Residence Inn at "Houston and 8th"

Posted by cjyoung on 14 March 2017 - 02:14 PM

It is dang wonder anything gets built in this city with people all over the place saying don't block this view or dumb height restrictions and threatening lawsuits.

 

Small town thinking gets small town results!

I'm with you there. 

 

I think we are moving slowly but surely.




#101405 Fort Worth Moves into 16th Place

Posted by cjyoung on 27 February 2017 - 05:07 PM

 

 

Here's what (I think) you're referring to: http://dfw.cbslocal....-next-10-years/
 
I'm a little disappointed Brian New didn't mention Fort Worth's Trinity River project.

 
Yea I was very disappointed. I went on CBS 11 facebook and let them have it. It should of been called Dallas Collin County and the Trinity River Park.  Only thing I saw that was interesting was talk of the Mavs moving to a new Arena in the next ten years. But what does that have to do with DFW population ?

Besides Panther Island they failed to mention anything about the Rangers new Ballpark and Entertainment complex as well as no mention of growth in the Alliance / Southern Denton County Area.

 

One of the reasons why I don't watch any local news.




#100958 City Attracted 8.8 Million Visitors Last Year

Posted by cjyoung on 03 February 2017 - 04:30 PM

 

Why not? The Disney parks are in Lake Buena Vista and most of the "Las Vegas Strip" isn't in the Las Vegas city limits.

 

Aren't you splitting hairs?

 

It was in reference to including Arlington/Tarrant County with Fort Worth.

I'd like to see such a museum in the cultural district as well.
