Grab your bike and bring your ideas for a better Fort Worth as Mayor Betsy Price and Mayor Pro Tem Dennis Shingleton kick off a fresh season of Rolling and Walking Town Halls at 6 p.m. March 29 at Casa Mañana, 3101 W. Lancaster Ave.
Riders will roll out by 6:15 p.m. for a casual, six-mile bike ride. Residents who don’t care to ride can meet for a group walk starting and ending at Casa Mañana. The walk will be led by FitWorth.
Thanks to today’s hectic and busy society, getting residents involved in charting the course for their city requires more creative approaches than the typical town hall meeting. Mayor Price implemented Walking, Rolling and Caffeinated Town Halls to break the mold of that traditional town hall meeting with a casual — yet active — way for residents to connect with their elected leaders.
Town halls will be scheduled in each council district over the coming months. Sometimes, city councilmembers join the mayor. Visit the Town Halls page for a schedule.
