Economic Development and Growth in Fort Worth

Fort Worth South is truly The new Urban Village of Fort Worth as their tag line states.

For years, the thousands of people who work in Fort Worth's Medical District have had a commute that has taken them through one of the oldest and most historic sections of town.  Now, that area is becoming re-vitalized and the growth is phenomenal, thanks to the efforts of Fort Worth South, Inc. over the years. 

The organization was created in 1996 to implement the May 1995 "Strategic Plan for Revitalizing the Southside Medical District."  Efforts included the huge task of getting all of the hospitals who were thinking relocation to agree to remain in the area.
