Panther Island- The City of Fort Worth’s Comprehensive Plan calls for sustainable growth in all areas in close proximity to downtown Fort Worth. The district due north of downtown, Panther Island, has been rezoned by the City of Fort Worth to provide a mixed-used district of greater density. The district is impacted by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers flood control project; however, no federal money is being used to accomplish the City’s sustainable growth goals for the district.
Central City Flood Project - The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Central City Flood Control Project addresses Fort Worth's flood risks resulting from explosive population growth. The two main components are: the rerouting of a section of the Trinity River north of downtown and modifying a large park on the city's east side to better manage flood events.
