Fort Worth, TX
Fort Worth Citywide Historic Preservation Plan
For a large community that has experienced substantial growth over the past several decades, Fort Worth has retained an impressive stock of historic buildings. The city is a showcase for nineteenth and early-twentieth-century Texas architecture. As a subconsultant to Looney Ricks Kiss Architects (LRK), The Walker Collaborative’s (TWC’s) Phil Walker served as the Project Manager for this plan.
Phil Walker coordinated the efforts of multiple local sub-consultants.
With a strong emphasis on public input, including over 25 public meetings, the plan addressed: historic site surveys, historic district designation, preservation ordinance revisions, design guidelines, citywide public policies, incentives for preservation, public education, and other related issues. The plan was adopted by the City Council and substantial implementation has occurred.
