ADDRESSING CHALLENGES THAT AFFECT DEVELOPMENT

REC's Public Affairs Committee has spent the past decade addressing issues that affect development.

The Committee actively tracks, on an ongoing basis, issues related to:

  • Urban Infill Design Guidelines

  • The City of Fort Worth Water Design Manual

  • The City of Fort Worth Transportation and Public Works Manual

  • Urban Forestry Policy

  • The Building Permitting-Lean Process


Additionally, the Public Affairs Committee is currently addressing or has recently addressed the following:

  • Water & Roadway Impact Fees

  • Neighborhood Empowerment Zones

  • Access Management

  • MUZAG (mixed-use zoning advisory group)

  • Stormwater Impact Areas/Local Flooding

  • Infill Development Ordinance

  • Local Control

  • Transportation Issues and Solutions (see details below)

To gain citizen input so REC can better assist with influencing and implementing future development in the greater Fort Worth area, REC of GFW conducts a bi-annual poll of Fort Worth voters and shares those results with members, community leaders and policymakers. The latest was conducted in 2021.
