Fort Worth Approves Stockyards Redevelopment Plan
FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) – Despite opposition from residents and civic leaders, the Fort Worth City Council voted 8-1 Tuesday to approve zoning changes to the historic Stockyards area.
The vote paves the way for a plan that would change the Stockyards area from heavy industrial zoning to mixed-use development.
The council did include provisions for what’s called a “form-based code” that sets regulations for everything from landscaping to a building’s facade.
The city will also conduct a traffic study.
The president of Billy Bob’s Texas, Concho Minick, was one of many people who raised concerns about the project.
The only council member to vote no was the newest one: Ann Zadeh.
