Advancing East Lancaster seeks input on plan

(FORT WORTH, TX – June 16, 2021) – The East Lancaster Avenue community is invited to complete a brief survey to provide vital feedback on the future vision of the historic corridor between downtown Fort Worth and beyond Interstate 820.

Taking the survey will help Trinity Metro and the City of Fort Worth create a transit-oriented development (TOD) plan to design a more connected, accessible, and thriving East Lancaster Avenue corridor through the implementation of local high-capacity transit and surrounding economic development.

High-capacity transit has the ability to bypass traffic and avoid delays by operating in a dedicated lane. Establishing local high-capacity transit can provide not only convenient transit options, but economic opportunities to the surrounding communities through mixed-use development of commercial, residential, office and entertainment centered around or located near each transit station, while creating a sense of community. Input will influence the design and economic development around proposed stations and support project plans to be compiled and presented to the Fort Worth City Council for approval.

We want to make sure your voice is heard. Complete the online survey by July 19, 2021, or fill out a hard copy survey at one of the following locations.

  • Eugene McCray Community Center Park
  • Sycamore Community Center
  • Handley Meadowbrook Community Center
  • Fort Worth Library – Meadowbrook
  • Fort Worth Library – East Regional

About the Advancing East Lancaster plan

As the region continues to grow, we want communities to evolve as well. High-capacity transit has the ability to bypass traffic and avoid delays by operating in a dedicated lane. Establishing local high-capacity transit can provide not only convenient transit options, but economic opportunities to the surrounding communities through mixed-use development of commercial, residential, office and entertainment centered around or located near each transit station, while creating a sense of community. Help us determine what the corridor could look like and its future possibilities.

This project is led by the City of Fort Worth and Trinity Metro in coordination with the consultant firm Kimley-Horn.
