Woodhaven Conservation Plan


The City of Fort Worth and Mayor Pro Tem Bivens are working closely with the board of the Woodhaven Tax Increment Finance District (TIF 13) to launch a Neighborhood Conservation Plan for the area.

This plan will chart a long-term course for continued investment in the Woodhaven neighborhood, while also creating a unified vision and identify shared priorities for the future of the community.

The project began in March 2024, and a draft plan is expected by the end of the year.

The City of Fort Worth's Economic Development Department has engaged a consultant team led by Interface Studio, The Collaborative Fort Worth, and Ninigret Partners to develop the plan, informed by extensive research and robust community engagement. Additionally, this team is working hand-in-hand with the Woodhaven Neighborhood Association and Woodhaven Community Development on this strategy.

The City invites and encourages community engagement throughout this planning process, and there will be multiple opportunities to get involved and make your voice heard in the future of the Woodhaven community.
