Rolling Town Hall riders
Mayor Price leads cyclists as they hit the streets for one of last year's Rolling Town Halls.

Grab your bike and bring your ideas for a better Fort Worth as Mayor Betsy Price begins a fresh season of Rolling and Walking Town Halls at 5:30 p.m. March 28 at the Bob Bolen Public Safety Complex, 505 W. Felix St.

Riders will roll out by 6 p.m. for a casual, no-drop bike ride. Residents who don’t care to ride can meet for a group walk starting and ending at the same location. The walk will be led by FitWorth.

Thanks to today’s hectic and busy society, getting residents involved in charting the course for their city requires more creative approaches than the typical town hall meeting. Mayor Price implemented Walking, Rolling and Caffeinated Town Halls to break the mold of that traditional town hall meeting with a casual — yet active — way for residents to connect with their elected leaders.

Town halls will be scheduled in each council district over the coming months. City councilmembers often join the mayor.
