The city of Fort Worth and the Cultural District Alliance received a 2013 Celebrating Leadership in Development Excellence Award for the redevelopment of the West Seventh Urban Village. The Fort Worth Independent School received a Public Planning Award for its District 2007 Capital Improvement Program which came in under budget and on time. The city of Arlington received a Public Awareness Award for a Flood Safety Awareness Novella – “The Rescue League Academy: Sink or Swim”. The Celebrating Leadership in Development Excellence (CLIDE) Awards Program was created in 2003 by the North Central Texas Council of Governments to encourage innovative development projects and practices that will help accommodate area growth. The West Seventh Urban Village was awarded under the redevelopment category for promoting development diversity, efficient growth, pedestrian design, housing choice, efficient mobility options, healthy communities and implementation of prior plans. The West Seventh Urban Village is a 200-acre redevelopment just west of downtown Fort Worth and east of the Cultural District.
