The City of Westworth Village is a quiet residential community, with a population of 3100 residents, approximately two square miles in area, on the west side of the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, in North Central Texas. Located on the banks of the Trinity River, five miles west of downtown Fort Worth, the City is surrounded by long-developed communities amid natural vegetation and landscape features that complement the pleasant appearance.
Following the transition of Carswell Air Force Base to the Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base Fort Worth in 1998, the City embarked on an ambitious program to transform 400 acres of federal government property and 500 abandoned houses into a high quality, multi-use urban development. The project’s design reflects attention to extensive greenbelts, placement separating residential neighborhoods from master planned commercial areas, and taking maximum advantage of its convenient location along Highway 183 and White Settlement Road. This bedroom community enjoys an exceptionally low crime rate and one of the lowest ad valorem tax rates in Tarrant County. Westworth Village remains one of the most fiscally sound incorporated cities in the Metroplex.
Commercial development includes large power center retailers, as well as smaller boutique shops offering a wide range of specialty merchandise and services. Capitalizing on its proximity to the recently renovated Ridgmar Mall, shoppers may experience one of the most convenient and diversified retail mixes in the Fort Worth area. Contemporary restaurant facilities will complement the shopping experience. Several courtyard-style offices are also planned. The City's modern municipal complex was built in 2008.
The City stands committed to its comprehensive development program, designed to improve the quality of life for the entire community. Development and privatization activities will assure the City a sound financial base for many years to come.
