Living the Downtown lifestyle. Downtown Fort Worth is currently experiencing a residential renaissance, as individuals and families embrace an urban lifestyle. Ranked by the U.S. Census Bureau as America’s 17th-largest city, Fort Worth’s population has grown 48.5% since 2000 to the current population of 794,189 (U.S. Census Bureau). The city added 34,451 residents from 2012 to 2013, a 4.5% growth in one year.

SAMUEL AVENUE

Created in 1986, Downtown Fort Worth Improvement District (PID) #1, administered by DFWI, offers a comprehensive program of services including research, marketing, Downtown PID Districts planning assistance, sidewalk PID #1 cleaning, street sweeping, PID #14 security enhancement, and litter removal. From 1986 to 2009, the PID services were renewed by petition every five years by an overwhelming majority of property owners. Because of the PIDâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ongoing success, it was reestablished in 2009 for a 20-year period by the Fort Worth City Council, following the submission of petitions from property owners representing 83% of the property value and 80% of the land area in the District. Downtown Fort Worth Improvement District #14 was established in June 2009. Since then, District contractors provide sidewalk maintenance along Samuels Avenue on Sundays and supplemental weekly trash pick-up. BEL
