BVWNA 2021 General Meeting - Feb 27th
The BVWNA held its annual meeting on February 27th via Zoom. The Board President Ann Salyer Caldwell opened the meeting and introduced the guest speakers Councilmember Gyna Bivens and FWPD Eastside Commander Leonard Elgin. There was a good discussion about issues facing our neighborhood and eastside community. Residents expressed their concern about litter, hearing gunfire, preserving trees and green spaces, and the lack of small businesses such as shops and restaurants in our immediate area. Councilmember Bivens shared the work being done to require builders to maintain old growth trees and the designation of property along John T White as a park to maintain the natural space prized in East Fort Worth. Commander Elgin reported on work being carried out by Eastside Division to address crime and gun fire. Our Neighborhood Patrol Officer Travis Ward was also on the call and contributed to the discussion. You can reach these officials via phone and/or email.

Devin Huffines from Huffines Communities Developer provided an update to residents and their plan to move forward with the purchase and development of the land east of the Bentley Village Waterchase neighborhood. BVWNA continues to monitor this situation closely, asking questions of the developer and of city officials, and talking with residents to explore options and make sure Bentley Village and Waterchase residents are informed. See the post on ZC20-086 for more detailed and updated information.
