Apartments, ‘road diet’ on council agenda

A. Lee Graham Reporter

The Fort Worth City Council is expected to consider a rezoning request for a $65 million upscale apartment complex planned to overlook the Trinity River at Northside Drive. The issue is up for vote at this week’s regular council meeting. Pre-council begins at 3 p.m., with the regular meeting starting at 7 p.m. at City Hall, 1000 Throckmorton St. At issue is a 500-unit apartment complex that also would feature a marina. Results of a traffic study, not to mention split neighborhood opinion, led the council to delay action until this week. Meanwhile, motorists using Forest Park Boulevard just south of Interstate 30 are expected to get some clarification at pre-council on improvement plans for that stretch of roadway. A restriping project known as a “road diet” was scheduled to change the roadway’s lane configuration before the project was delayed amid opposition among some homeowner groups and what others cited as a need for further study.
