One Big Prediction Oversight

Sunday's Fort Worth Star Telegram featured an article on the Trinity River Development. The Army Corps of Engineers has been suggesting that the Oxbow section of the Trinity River on the east side be added to the river's redevelopment. I hope we approve the suggestion and that some day that section of the city on the near north and east that is now flood plane will be developed into parks, residences and business.

If you've seen any of the plans you will agree that it is a monumental project. That is not hyperbole. I mentioned in the "Best Of" post that the Cowboys Stadium will change Arlington forever -- that was a tad hyperbolic. The Trinity River project is on a different scale. If it is completed in any way as it is proposed Fort Worth will be a different place with a river that is integrated into the heart of the city.
