Posted July 18, 2019

Archived Content Information and links provided may no longer be accurate.

A draft report on the Trinity River Vision project is now available for viewing.

The Trinity River Vision Authority (TRVA) is responsible for implementing a public infrastructure project that provides needed flood protection and fosters the development of a pedestrian-oriented urban waterfront district in Fort Worth known as Panther Island. At the same time, the project will deliver what will be one of the largest urban programmed parks in the country, Gateway Park.

Statement from TRVA Board President G.K. Maenius

Last Wednesday, July 10, The Trinity River Vision Authority Board of Directors met in its regularly-scheduled monthly meeting. As part of the meeting’s agenda, there was an update concerning the Trinity River Vision’s (aka: Central City Flood Control Project’s) pending programmatic review. Earlier that day, we had received the draft report from our outside independent consultant (Riveron). At the time of this meeting, neither I, nor any TRVA board member, had the opportunity to review Riveron’s draft review.

Industry best practices call for an internal review of a draft report to ensure that the data underlying the development of findings, and eventually the making of recommendations, is accurate. At last week’s meeting, the TRVA board members were provided with a copy of the draft report and asked to submit any comments directly to Riveron. It was also stated at last week’s meeting that when Riveron presented its final report to the board, both the draft and the final versions of the programmatic review would be released to the public. While there was much board discussion about the time necessary to respond to the draft report, we agreed that there should be a reasonable internal review period.

One week has passed since that meeting and our TRVA board members have now either provided corrected information or will be completing their comments shortly to Riveron. I apologize for any confusion over this approach, but verifying the draft report’s accuracy was our only goal for conducting an internal review.

However, since the board meeting, a copy of the draft report was given to various media sources. Therefore, today as president of the TRVA board, I am publicly releasing Riveron’s draft programmatic review so that any interested party has full access to it. A link to review this draft report will be available on the home websites of Tarrant County and Trinity River Vision Authority. I am also asking that the Tarrant Regional Water District and the City of Fort Worth consider posting Riveron’s draft report on their websites, along with this statement.

Again, both the draft and final versions of Riveron’s programmatic review are public documents for guiding the TRVA board and its governmental partners to the successful completion of this critical flood control and community project.
