Council Report: Design overlay district for Stop Six

Some more changes may be coming to Stop Six, and it could start in early June.

At its May 21 work session, the Fort Worth City Council received an informal report concerning a proposed resolution and some upcoming public hearings concerning the matter.

The council was informed that the June 4 agenda will contain a resolution to initiate a zoning change to create a design overlay district for single family development in the Stop Six neighborhood.

On March 19, the city council approved a resolution to apply single family design standards to projects receiving Neighborhood Empowerment Zone (NEZ) incentives in this area. That, however, has been met with opposition from District 5 Councilwoman Gyna Bivens. She has requested the proposed design district to apply design standards to all single family projects, and not just those receiving NEZ incentives.
