A Message from... Tom Cravens

Tom Cravens, long time observer of Arlington and North Texas, has a word or two to say about Abram Street.  --more--

What is this site about?

Abram Street between Collins Street on the East and Cooper on the West is the defacto main street of Arlington, TX. We'd like to see it continue as an engine for revitalization and redevelopment for the benefit of the entire City.  

This site is intended to be a collection point for all things Downtown and especially, what's happening on Abram Street.  

Current Issues

Abram Street Redesign

City Council has approved and bonds have been issued to rebuild Abram Street. This is a once in a life-time opportunity for us to craft a street that will encourage and support the redevelopment of downtown Arlington that has been in the planning stages for the past 15 years. The question is what will it be - a modern pedestrian friendly street supporting the growth and vitality of the City, or just another thoroughfare to move cars east and west through our downtown.
