The Fort Worth City Council, before taking a break for the holidays, gave residents in Cavile Place and Stop Six a present.

The council approved the implementation of a Neighborhood Improvement Strategy pilot program for those neighborhoods. It includes $2.6 million in capital funds in the fiscal year 2017 budget aimed at increasing public safety, improving the physical characteristics, promoting economic revitalization, proving supportive services to reduce poverty and improving the quality of life.

“The ultimate goal is to ensure an increase to the vitality of our most challenged neighborhoods through targeted public investment that increases overall safety, improves overall neighborhood aesthetics, fosters more positive community perceptions, thereby creating a stronger sense of community by residents, and provides the means to leverage additional public and private investment,” said Neighborhood Services Director Aubrey Thagard.

Though no detailed budget will be released before consulting with residents, the potential scope of the capital investment will include:

*Expanding neighborhood walkability by installing sidewalks, streetlamps and landscaping.

*Improving the aesthetics and safety with park improvements, cleaning up vacant and abandoned property, tree trimming with brush removal and bulk item clearance, and improved lighting at city facilities.

*Identifying opportunities for community projects.

*Implementing surveillance cameras in area hot spots to reduce/eliminate crime.

This is part of the Cavile Place Neighborhood Transformation Plan adopted by the city in 2014. In May, the council approved two zoning changes that would allow multifamily housing to be built along East Rosedale Street.
