At the Tuesday, June 10, 2014 Fort Worth City Council meeting, the council voted 8-1 to approve generous tax abatement measures for a Stockyards redevelopment project by the Hickman family and California developer Majestic Realty.

At his last Council meeting, Councilman Joel Burns laid bare the City's reticence to protect its heritage. See his full comments here.
