Community and civic leaders will converge at Texas Wesleyan University to discuss the progress of the design for the East Rosedale Street project – a $15.5 million redesign that includes roadwork, landscaping and public art between US 287 and Miller Avenue. The meeting begins at 6 p.m. Monday, Sept. 10, at the Baker Building, located on the corner of Wesleyan Street and Rosedale.
Texas Wesleyan President Frederick G. Slabach will welcome the group to campus and participate in a ceremonial document signing for the project. A public meeting will follow the signing of the Commitment to the Community.
The North Central Texas Council of Governments, Texas Department of Transportation, Tarrant County, City of Fort Worth and Texas Wesleyan University are partnering on a $32 million project to reconstruct and rehabilitate East Rosedale between US 287 and Stalcup in a two-phase project.
Freese and Nichols, Inc. was contracted by the City of Fort Worth as the architectural firm to create the design based on community feedback. Meetings have been conducted over the past year with community stakeholders for input in this design process. Final plans will be presented to the City Council later this year for approval, with an anticipated construction date in spring 2013.
