Downtown Fort Worth, Inc. In the early 1980s, Fort Worth began the urban revitalization of its Downtown central business district. The goal for Downtown was to be a center city bustling with activity morning, noon and night, both during the workweek and on weekends. To provide a private-sector voice for this revitalization effort, Downtown Fort Worth, Inc. (DFWI) was established by a handful of concerned property owners in December 1981. Since its inception, DFWI has evolved into a significant advocate for progress and excellence. This membership-based organization has contributed to Downtown Fort Worth’s vitality by serving as a liaison, ombudsman and information source for property owners, developers and prospective businesses. Every 10 years, DFWI partners with the City of Fort Worth and the Fort Worth Transportation Authority (The T) to update the Downtown Strategic Action Plan. This plan is incorporated into the City’s comprehensive plan and implemented through a series of committees and public/private partnerships. The City of Fort Worth approved Plan 2023 in December 2013. DFWI expanded its management role in 1986 by establishing Fort Worth Improvement District #1 (PID) to provide enhanced services to 335 blocks within Downtown Fort Worth. Due to the PID’s ongoing success, in 2009 PID #1 was re-established for a 20-year period and PID #14 was created. In 1988, Downtown Fort Worth, Inc. formed Downtown Fort Worth Initiatives, Inc. (DFWII). This 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization provides a pathway for foundation grants, philanthropic donations and other contributions to help fund charitable, educational and public-purpose Downtown projects. In 1995, DFWI championed the creation of the Downtown Tax Increment Financing (TIF) District. The TIF is managed by DFWI through a contract with the TIF Board of Directors. The TIF Board approved an increase in the lifetime cap to $100 million, which the City Council approved in September 2013. The TIF has leveraged and obligated $69 million in public commitments into $433 million in private-sector investment and generated more than a half-billion dollars in tax increment. Through the programs of DFWI, members take an active role in the management of, and advocacy for, the center city. Several standing committees and special task forces work to fulfill the organization’s mission of creating a vibrant, healthy and attractive center in which to work, live and play.

SAMUEL AVENUE

Created in 1986, Downtown Fort Worth Improvement District (PID) #1, administered by DFWI, offers a comprehensive program of services, including research, marketing, planning PID Districts assistance, sidewalk cleaning, PID #1 street sweeping, security PID #14 enhancement, and litter removal. From 1986 to 2009, 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 property value and 80% of land area in the District.

To date, the TIF has obligated $69 million, leveraging $483 million in private development and facilitating $41 million in public investment. The updated TIF Project and Financing Plan, adopted in 2013, is projected to return between $4.4 million and $4.9 million of tax increment to the taxing district partners each year from 2014 to 2017. This amount is in excess of the annual revenues to the TIF, which are projected at $4.3 million to $4.8 million. DFWI manages the Downtown TIF through a contract with the TIF Board of Directors.

The Intermodal Transportation Center, which opened in 2002, is the central gathering point for the Greyhound Bus Line, The Fort Worth Transportation Authority (The T), Trinity Railway Express, Amtrak, taxis and the Molly the Trolley shuttle service. Currently, 39 bus routes serve Downtown. The T also operates a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Free Zoneâ&#x20AC;? that offers rides at no cost to anyone traveling within the central business district.

In addition, The Tower garage offers first-hour-free parking during daytime hours, as does the City Place garage for validated guests. There are more than 42,000 Downtown parking spaces.
