In Topic: Economic Development Plan

Yesterday, 09:13 PM

It would be interesting to see where Fort Worth's big growth has been relative to the school districts the big growth areas are in.  North Fort Worth is not FWISD to my understanding, and that's where much of the population volume growth has been.  The core areas, which appear to have greater wealth, and access to Country Day, All Saints, Trinity Valley, etc. also seem to contribute to the city's growth.  I would imagine that companies like Toyota, which support upper middle class white collar jobs, are looking for good public school districts to serve their large work forces.  Just sayin'.  I did not read the report, but if it did not address the sub par schools in the FWISD, to me, it has left out a big part of the challenge of attracting the Toyota's of world to Fort Worth.

Agree.  Really, an opportunity.  They are leaving behind some terrific restored architecture.  Natural gas???  Fort Worth will do just fine.
