Preservation & Urban Design

Fort Worth's Preservation & Design division provides leadership for the physical design of the city. The Preservation & Design division offers guidance to property owners and developers throughout the development process to ensure the logical organization of our future city via the creation of vibrant public spaces that cultivate public life. The Preservation & Design team oversees the City's Preservation Program, Design Districts, and Form-Based Code districts with the shared goal of rehabilitating and creating high-quality buildings that contribute to a dynamic public realm. This division also manages the Historic & Cultural Landmarks Commission, the Urban Design Commission, and the Downtown Design Review Board.
