UPDATED: Includes updated Neighborhood Streets list to include District 5's.
Fort Worth hits the road again Thursday, with the next one of 19 scheduled community meetings this summer and fall to gather feedback for its $292 million May 2014 bond program. This meeting is 6:30 p.m.-7:30 p.m. Thursday at the Meadowbrook United Methodist Church, 3900 Meadowbrook Drive.
The city's made some changes to the staff recommendations. They are:
Reducing the total capacity to $292 million from $296 million, shoving the extra into a scheduled debt sale this summer.
Adding $1.6 million for an East Lancaster Street/Oakland Boulevard library sought by District 8 Council member Kelly Allen Gray. Gray traded some street money from her district in the bond package for the library. The $1.6 million will pay for the acquisition and rehab of an existing space, Jay Chapa, the city's acting financial management services director, said. Gray said she's shooting for a partnership that can help fully fund a new library.
District 8's Shackleford Park has swapped places with the district's Delga Park on the staff-recommended list of playground replacements.
The city corrected some earlier data on the proposed expansion to the Eugene McCray Community Center. It's in the recommendations at 2,950 square feet and 38 parking spaces.
