A Community Vision for Fort Worth

CDFW's main purpose is to engage the public to create a more inclusive and equitable city by focusing on ideas and concepts not addressed by either the public or private sector. 

It is only through community-led design that we can truly create a vision for Fort Worth that improves the lives of its citizens and creates a community that succeeds in providing something for everyone.

We're currently working on


poly heights project

As Texas Wesleyan University undergoes a new masterplan, there is an opportunity for improved connectivity to the surrounding neighborhood community.   This project would be a collaboration between Community Design Fort Worth, the University of Texas Arlington, and Texas Wesleyan University. The proposed project will end with a symposium hosted by UTA in the spring of 2021.
