Continuing the Conversation on Panther Island: An Urban Design Talk

As the Panther Island project gains momentum and the vision changes focus, it is important to hear from communities that will be directly impacted by it. Join us in a conversation that centers the North Side as a primary stakeholder. If you attended (or even if you didn’t) the Fort Worth Report Candid Conversation regarding Panther Island and are interested in further discussion from the Northside’s perspective, join us on August 30th at 6 pm at Artes de la Rosa. We hope to see you there if you live, work, or play in the Northside.

The panelists are members of the Northside community, including Jason Escobedo, Graduate Student at UT-Arlington School of Architecture and Northside resident; Annette Landeros, President & CEO of Fort Worth Hispanic Chamber of Commerce; Sal Espino, Attorney and business owner in Northside; and Richard & Patricia Perez, Residents of Northside. The event will be moderated by Dennis Antonio Chiessa, who grew up in Northside and is an Assistant Professor of Architecture at UTA and a Community Design Fort Worth board member.
