The Fairmount Neighborhood Association is conducting this survey to gather input on any traffic, parking, or noise issues that residents who live near businesses on Magnolia Avenue may be experiencing.

The purpose of this survey is to determine if and to what extent residents in this area are affected by issues of traffic, parking, and noise from the Magnolia business district. Survey participants who want to participate further, by discussing solutions to any identified problems, will have an opportunity to provide their contact information for future follow up. 

Survey feedback--along with input from Fairmount Neighborhood Association, the local business community, and other community organizations (like Fort Work South, Inc.) -- will be used to help make a proposal and action plan that will be presented to the City of Fort Worth for approval and implementation.

Our Neighborhood

Located on the near south side of Fort Worth, Texas and covering about one square mile, the Fairmount Southside Historic District contains one of the nation’s richest collections of turn of the century housing. Fairmount is comprised of about 20 subdivisions platted between 1883 and 1907. At the time, Fairmount was a fashionable neighborhood.

About one third of the houses were occupied by business executives who managed their own firms. Professions were represented by many doctors, lawyers, and educators. It was a diverse neighborhood, where craftsmen, inclucing brick and stone masons lived next door to railroad workers. As Fort Worth’s suburbs grew following World War II, the neighborhood fell into disrepair.

Today, through the efforts of of many property owners, residents are working to revitalize the area to restore its past glory.
