I think Fort Worth can do better before the “March Madness” big game gets here. Why can’t the city put a set of longhorns on each Molly the Trolley? Also, why are some of the buildings not taking part in outlining the edges with lights? Let’s get the Federal Building, W.T. Waggoner Building, the Star-Telegram and Oil and Gas buildings.

The Chamber of Commerce could recommend that to those owners, and for smaller buildings, they could outline just the roof line and some windows. If we could do that, and also finish lighting the trees all the way to Lancaster Avenue, it would tie the whole downtown together. That would bring the Intermodal Transportation Center, Sheraton Fort Worth Hotel, Fort Worth Convention Center and General Worth Square all into one large downtown area.
