Bedford is ready for July Fourth! 🇺🇸 In preparation for Sunday’s fireworks show (check out all the details at www.bedfordtx.gov/4thFEST), Public Works staff placed signs throughout the City on Friday – and had a little bit of fun in the process! A special shoutout goes out to the Bedford resident who hopped in a photo with one of our crews!

The City Council recently approved a measure that will have a 𝗕𝗜𝗚 impact on our residents and businesses - a new five-year street capital improvement plan! This plan will address both the major roads in Bedford and 65 neighborhood streets that need improvements the most. Even better news? The funding for these projects will not impact property taxes.

To create the strategic plan, Engineering staff conducted a pavement analysis of streets that were at least 40 years old. Citizen comments and concerns were also factored into the plan. Then, Engineering staff developed a simplified rating method and evaluated the high priority roads to perform first-hand evaluations.

Harwood Road will be the first of the City’s major thoroughfares to be repaved in this plan, following the completion of the waterline project which is estimated to be complete summer 2022. Then, crews will address Forest Ridge Drive. Forest Ridge will also need to have a larger waterline installed and will be repaved after that process is finished. Upgrades to Brown Trail and Murphy Road are incorporated into the plan as well.

To view project timelines, a list of neighborhood streets that are included, maps, and more about this strategic street improvement plan, please visit www.bedfordtx.gov/streetplan.

Happy National Parks and Recreation Month! 🌳🏊‍♀️🚴‍♂️Be sure to give Bedford Parks and Recreation a follow as they tell you all the exciting things coming up this year.

It's July! That means it's officially National Park and Recreation Month. Since 1985, the U.S. has observed July as Park and Recreation Month to celebrate the power of parks and recreation to build strong resilient communities, and to recognize the more than 160,000 full-time park and recreation professionals — along with hundreds of thousands of part-time and seasonal workers and volunteers — that maintain our country’s local, state and community parks. 🌳

This month, we will introduce you to our wonderful Parks and Rec professionals, to tell you what we have on the horizon for the last half of 2021, and maybe even help you learn about a Bedford park you've never been to.

We are so excited to tell you even more about what it is we do!

This city could save more than $300K per year by consolidating jail services

Last week the Euless City Council approved this measure, helping Bedford save approximately $300K a year. This is a great example of cities working together to strengthen regional ties and save tax dollars for both cities. 🤝

Bedford’s police chief said the city could save money by housing inmates in the Euless jail.

Oh how we’ve grown! We love a good Throwback Thursday photo – check out the difference in the Bedford skyline (heading westbound on SH 183) from 1964 to 2021!

Bedford’s population in 1964 grew to approximately 4,000, due to housing and developments being built to accommodate families and employees of Bell Helicopter, as our nation’s involvement in Vietnam began to escalate. Then in 1970, the population jumped to over 10,000 as the new DFW Airport was under construction. Today, just under 50,000 people call Bedford home. 🏡

Sidewalk construction will begin Monday, June 28 at the 2000-2100 block of Shady Brook Drive, from Shady Lane to Shady Wood Drive. This is especially good news for families whose children walk to Shady Brook Elementary School nearby. The sidewalk is anticipated to be complete by late July, weather depending, in plenty of time before the new school year. Residents Ellie Pitts and Mary Young were instrumental in helping this become a reality, by getting the necessary signatures on a petition from the vast majority of the homeowners in this section.

To request a sidewalk repair in the City, please fill out the request form at www.bedfordtx.gov/sidewalkrepair. Requests are sent to the Streets Division and Streets personnel will go out to the site to inspect and evaluate the sidewalk’s condition. Then, the sidewalk will be given a rating to determine its priority in the repair queue.

Public Works is currently working on a formal request process for residents to request sidewalks be put in where there is no existing sidewalk. The proposed process will need to be reviewed and approved by the 4B Commission and City Council. If approved, it will be promoted on City communication channels.

Anyone else not have power? I know there are rolling blackouts right now, just not sure where they are. We’ve lost power twice now within 30 minutes of each outage.
Attn City of Bedford Services: I noticed on my water bill the recycling services have been suspended. Why are we being charged for services not rendered? Please tell me a new recycling provider is scheduled to start ASAP. Recycling is important to my family! Thanks in advance for your prompt reply.
This beautiful girl followed my husband home. Does anyone know her or her owners?
When will the City of Bedford repair the pavement on Cummings dr under the 121 Fwy bridge?
Hi, when will the trail be open around the lake?
Thanks for fixing the sidewalks along Bedford Road but there is still a section of Bedford Road without a sidewalk at all - on either side of the road!!
I would like to thank the Bedford firemen on truck 152 that help me and my wife this afternoon at the Walgreens on Central Drive. I was trying to get my wife out of my car and into a wheelchair when she got stuck on the floor board and I couldn't get her up. The store manager of Walgreens called for help and 3 firemen got her back into the car and we made it back home. Thanks again to the Bedford Fire Department and the Walgreens manager for their help.
why are the email links on the city's webpage not working? i've tried a couple of time to email about various issues, so i am posting here. today i visited the main post office on Harwood, and the beautiful group of resident geese were grazing by the post office near the creek. however, four of them had managed to cross Harwood and were grazing in the median. would it be possible to have some duck/geese crossing signs installed along that strip of Harwood? i hate to think of one of these beautiful creatures meeting their end being hit by a car.
NE TARRANT is hardest hit with NILE /need to to have Autumn Chase Square area Bad Please follow through Thanks and I hope everyone is safe
Power is out near Central and Harwood. Any idea why?
While out running errands this morning in Bedford, we saw Bedford Police officers assisting a gentleman that was having car trouble on the side of the road. This is the pictures we don't see. I stopped and asked if I could get a picture and thanked them both. #cityofbedford#letsallworktogether
What’s going on at Harwood and Brown Trail? Big group gathering.
