I'm completely and thoroughly shocked Fort Worth didn't make Amazon's short list! [/sarcasm]
If Amazon is lumping metros together why does D.C. (NOVA & Montgomery Co) have 3 separate spots and NYC with two (Newark)?
Also, gotta wonder what Houston getting left off means for DFW. Houston has a lot in common with DFW.
This tells me Fort Worth has been eliminated. If Amazon were seriously considering Fort Worth, they would know they should refer to the region as "Dallas-Fort Worth," or list both cities separately like with the above examples.
Maybe they had identified where the money was going to come from, but had those TIFs agreed to where the route was going to be located exactly, and which neighborhood would get the streetcar built first? I suggest they hadnt settle those questions, which is why the city council failed to approve it. The i-s were not doted and the t-s were not cerossed because a proper EIS procedure and process wasnt followed.
Fort Worth city council voted to stop studying the plan. The study Austin posted clearly identifies a recommended starter route.
