Evans Rosedale Urban Village

Learn more about the Evans-Rosedale RFEI

The Evans & Rosedale village is located in the Near Southeast neighborhood at the intersection of East Rosedale Street and Evans Avenue in Council District 8. Its proximity to downtown Fort Worth and Interstates I-35W and I-30 make it attractive for investment.


This village has received local and federal funding for infrastructure improvements, environmental cleanup, site preparation, and a low-interest business loan program. A recent grant award ($85,000) from the North Central Texas Council of Governments, Sustainable Development program, will be used to fund a housing market study and urban design standards.

The advocacy and professional organizations that promote business development and investment in this village include the Near Southeast CDC, Southeast Fort Worth, Inc., and Fort Worth South.
