The Oakland Corners village is located at the intersection of East Lancaster Avenue and Oakland Boulevard and includes approximately five blocks along East Lancaster Avenue.
Current land uses dominating the village include large-scale strip centers and vacant big box retail buildings. As redevelopment occurs, it is envisioned that mixed-use development and structured parking would replace the existing large surface parking lots. Future commercial and mixed-use development is desired to be compatible to the architectural features of the craftsman-style neighborhoods to the immediate north and south.
This village was recently awarded a $50,000 grant to undertake a community-driven planning process to address various issues including development opportunities, transportation needs and priorities, design guidelines, etc.
The advocacy and professional organizations that promote business development and investment in this village include the West Meadowbrook and Sergeant Avenue Neighborhood Associations, and East Fort Worth Business Association.
