Summary

1) Fort Worth already has the structure and amenities in place to become a first-class Central Business District, so what’s the next step in driving urban development downtown? 

2) How has Fort Worth recovered from the departure of XTO? And what’s the city’s plan for attracting new businesses and retaining companies already situated within city limits?

3)  What is Fort Worth doing to develop the live, work and play atmosphere preferred by the next generation’s workforce? 

4) Relocating companies are focused on local colleges, universities and public schools to ensure the existence of well-trained talent. What initiatives are underway to develop next generation talent in Fort Worth?

5) As a destination, Fort Worth is currently known for its conventions, stockyards and tourists. How does the chamber and city intend to leverage these existing assets to foster future development? 

6) Industrial activity and demand for land in and around Fort Worth is booming. Will this faucet of opportunity keep dripping in Tarrant County — if so, for how long? 

7) With cap rates compressed, Fort Worth's industrial market is becoming a target for major national players. Will the city’s industrial market remain strong through 2019?  What factors are spurring or inhibiting growth?
