Odds and Ends from the Startlegram

  • Knights of Pythias Hall Update: The developer claims it is too costly to renovate the Knights of Pythias Hall at Third and Crump that is in danger of demolition. The two-story structure just east of downtown is on Historic Fort Worth's list of Most Endangered Places. John Roberts, a vice president with Historic Fort Worth, said he'd like to see the owners use federal tax credits and other monies offered for preservation projects to save the property. The city's Historic and Cultural Landmarks Commission must weigh in before demolition can go forward.The commission's next meeting is scheduled for July 9. Please take time to contact the Commission and get them to prevent this.

  • Fort Worth Rail Meetings: Public meetings are scheduled for next weekon the proposed Cottonbelt Rail Line. The line would run from Altamesa Blvd./Dirks Rd. in Southwest Fort Worth to D/FW Airport. Other Fort Worth stops would include I20/Granbury Rd., Berry St./TCU, Medical District, T&P Terminal, ITC, Stockyards/23rd St. and Beach St.
