    Technical Assistance Panels (TAPs) are 1-to-3-day work sessions in which dedicated and seasoned professional ULI Members volunteer their expertise and time to offer objective and responsible guidance on a variety of land use and real estate issues presented by a local municipality. 
    This TAP is focused on the historic Stop 6 Neighborhood, named for being the sixth stop on the interurban electric streetcar system which ran between Fort Worth and Dallas. In recent years the area has depopulated and experienced a lack of employment opportunities and services such as grocery stores.  
    Utilizing a webinar format, our virtual public presentation at the conclusion of the TAP on Friday, February 12th, will allow the wider public a chance to see and hear the panelist’s findings and suggested guidance regarding potential uses of a Choice Neighborhood Grant from HUD to the City of Fort Worth to implement critical community improvements.The goal of this undertaking is to encourage new mixed use development and other private sector investment in the community.
