City of Fort Worth

The stunning and sprawling City of Fort Worth is one of the fastest-growing cities in the U.S. And it’s no wonder — With great neighborhoods, scenic terrain and a rich history of arts and culture, paired with world-class opportunities for business and education, it’s not only fun to visit Fort Worth, it’s even more rewarding to call it home. Fort Worth truly offers all the benefits and amenities of a bustling metropolitan city, while keeping the small-town charm that keeps it unpretentious and charismatic in all the right ways. Designated as one of America’s “Most Livable Communities” by the Partners for Livable Communities, the city truly offers a melting pot of culture, commerce, community and yes, cowboys 

Great Neighborhood:

The scenery truly can’t be beat. Big Texas skies, open lakes, and ample walking, running and cycling paths combined with a Blue Zone Health Initiative have put Fort Worth well on its way to being one of the healthiest cities in the U.S. 

The City of Cowboys and Culture: “One of the Fastest-Growing Cities in the US”:

Fort Worth is one of the largest cities in the United States in terms of sheer size with almost 350 square miles of land in three counties. Located in North Central Texas, Fort Worth is the fifth-largest city in Texas and the 13th largest in the U.S. 

Exciting Growth & Future Development:

One of the most fascinating aspects of the City of Fort Worth is its almost unprecedented growth over the past several years. Both in terms of population and industry, and as the 16th largest city in the United States, Fort Worth is truly booming — which presents both challenges and opportunities to truly develop this city in the right way. Every 24 minutes a new person moves to Fort Worth, so we’re looking for candidates who can embrace an ever-growing and changing environment and improve on it with solutions that work for the entire community of Fort Worth. 

Vision:

Fort Worth’s vision is to be the most livable and best-managed city in the country. We’ll do this by taking care of our citizens, implementing the highest quality standards in our schools, continually improving the neighborhoods we thrive in and the facets of the city that make our town so unique.
