"Victory Forest project stopped after subcontractors claim payments are due from prime contractor"

http://fortworthtexa...-Forest-update/

 

Per Ann Zadeh at our neighborhood meeting on 3/23/17:

  • The original contract was terminated mid-march.
  • On March 24, the city attorney and bond company met at the site to estimate the remaining construction.  
  • Parks and Community Services is ready to move ahead with programs as soon as construction is complete.  The director of Victory Forest Center was also in attendance.  

In Topic: District 9 City Council Race 2017 - Zadeh vs. Fitzgerald

Zadeh has been a hands-on city councilperson with Shaw-Clarke NA.  She and other city department heads spent about two hours with us in the heat last summer as we assessed the condition of the Shaw Street Pedestrian Tunnel, an infrastructure albatross we happened to be blessed with in SCNA.  

 

We have a community center on the way and two new sidewalks in the past few weeks.  

 

She is always open and honest with city progress, and, realistic about what the council can and cannot do.  

If we have to form a new relationship with Mr. Fitzgerald, we will, but I hope it doesn't come to that.  Zadeh has earned her position and deserves to keep it.

After three years of waiting, in August ground broke one the Victory Forest Recreation Center.  It will open in January.  http://fortworthtexa...ictoryforestcc/

 

Edit: I don't know if this qualifies as "best," but some of us Southsiders are really looking forward to this!
