I'm done with these people and their Mayberry mentality.
Fort Worth always seems to take a two steps forward, step and a half back approach to transportation and development. It's very frustrating to see people with NO vision calling themselves "leaders" of (what is supposed to be) a major city.
Most posters here are urbanists, advocate for higher density residential, and mass transit of all types.
They place blame on others not seeing and building the future they want, Mayberry mentality huh?
The fact is that Fort Worth has ZERO true urban residential neighborhoods. Downtown is surrounded by the Trinity River on three compass points, the fourth compass point has the Southside, a fairly large and growing Medical District regenerating into a larger one. It will have fewer and fewer residential units as the Medical District grows. The Museum District to the west is growing, but it is not a true residential district, and is urbanizing along a few, I repeat, the minimum number of streets. It is located on the opposite side of the Trinity River as downtown.
When you live in suburbia, expect suburban mentalities to rule, even within a large central city. Fort Worth is not Manhattan, Brooklyn, or Queens, it is more akin to New Rochelle, Yonkers, and Long Island suburbs than the heart of New York City.
It is one thing to advocate for more urban style "developments" in Fort Worth, but an entire different thing to expect massive changes to complete urban style "neighborhoods" in Fort Worth.
Developments alone do not make transit systems possible, neighborhoods do. The hardest fact many here should learn is that Fort Worth does not have a single urban residential neighborhood. And if it will make you feel better, the same can be said for every city in Texas, including Austin, Dallas, El Paso, Houston, and San Antonio.
Mass transit requires higher densities than all the cities in Texas have. Austin, Dallas, El Paso, and Houston rail based mass transit are not known for drawing huge passenger numbers. Many on national urban sites laugh at the poor ridership for mass transit in every Texas city. Well, what do you expect with suburban residential neighborhoods?
