The Ft Worth Ave Development Group is an organization that advocates for sensible development that encourages biking, walking, greenspace, and respect for the community (It deals with wonky zoning and code issues that seem abstract until you see that they make the difference between a new road with six lanes of fast cars, or four lanes, a bike lane, and a wide tree-lined sidewalk.)  Check us out and learn more at


Please send your contact info, a brief bio, and a description of your idea or a picture if you have it made.
