ReddIt Facebook + posts printThe Historic Stockyards Design District Task Force decided in an 8-6 vote yesterday to tighten the regulations on building height by changing it from a guideline to a standard.The new rule requires all new constructions and additions within 50 feet of a historical structure to be within two stories of the historical structure, according to the Overarching Standards and Guidelines of the Stockyards Design Overlay District.The standard also mandates that transitions are necessary when the new construction is more than two stories taller than the historic structure, according to the Overarching Standards and Guidelines of the Stockyards Design Overlay District.The qualification for a historic structure for this project is “things that are eligible for being on the National Register of Historic Places,” Task Force Staff Liaison Dana Burghdoff said.“We need to protect the Stockyards,” task force member Bob Adams said. “This is Fort Worth. This is the Stockyards. This is life is too short to live in Dallas.”The task force also decided to add a list of proposed and inappropriate building materials to be added to the guidelines section of the project. A guideline differs from a standard because a guideline is a suggestion to follow, whereas a standard is a hard rule. If companies would like an exemption from a standard they would have to petition the city’s Urban Design Commission for one, Senior Assistant City Attorney Melinda Ramos said.In addition, the task force chose not to take action on whether a lot at 2201 Main St. should be removed from the overlay district. The lack of a vote meant that the lot remains a part of the district.“I’m not trying to tear anything down,” task force member Keith Kidwill said.This task force assembled last year at the request of the Fort Worth City Council in order to guide development of a new Stockyards design district, according to the city of Fort Worth website.The plan for the design district came about after the city of Fort Worth approved the use of tax increment financing (TIF) Aug. 4. The TIF is a finance tool used by local governments to publicly finance needed structural improvements and enhanced infrastructure within a defined area, according to the city of Fort Worth website.For the Stockyards area the tax revenue will come from the city of Fort Worth, Tarrant County, Tarrant County College District and the Tarrant Regional Water District. Their portion of funds for the project, projected at around $40 million, will go towards improvements such as roads, pedestrian areas, public amenities, historic restoration and parking infrastructure, according to the project plan and financing plan for the reinvestment zone.Stockyards Trading Post employee Scott Tallmon said he thinks these plans are a good idea because they would bring more people to the Stockyards.“I think it would be wonderful,” Tallmon said. “It’d be good for the Stockyards.”Rudy Martinez, manager of the Riscky’s BBQ in the Stockyards, said he also believed that the new designs would bring more people to the Stockyards, but is worried about keeping the Stockyards unique.“We don’t want to lose the identity of the Stockyards,” Martinez said “As long as we can control and find a balance to it, it should be a great thing for Fort Worth.”Some visitors to the Stockyards however, such Emily Totty who was visiting from Australia, are not as optimistic about the update.“Tell them not to do it,” Totty said. “The whole point of this place is that it’s historically there. I love that you walk around this place and it feels old timey, it doesn’t feel like you’re in the 21st century.”Allan Campaign, a self-proclaimed history buff visiting from New York, said it would be a good idea to keep the Stockyards going but wants the designers to remember the history in their plans.“That’s the important part,” Campaign said. “I hope they keep that part in mind.”However not everyone is as worried about maintaining the history of the Stockyards.“The only history that could be lost is tearing down some old stockyard stalls back there,” Tallmon said. “They only got 20 head of cattle so they only need one little spot to keep them.”The task force is set to meet again either Sept. 23 or 24 where members plan to discuss more about the proposed building materials and do a look through of the update plans as a whole.

Construction spending in November was dominated by housing again as concerns grow about “meager” nonresidential work (iStock)Homebuilding continued to boom in November, new data show, while concern is growing over the lack of nonresidential projects.Construction spending overall grew to an estimated $1.46 trillion in November, seasonally adjusted, up 0.9 percent from October, according to the Census Bureau’s monthly report.Private residential projects, including home renovations, accounted for 45 percent of the total with an estimated $658 billion put toward private homebuilding, up 2.7 percent from the revised October figure. It was the sixth consecutive month in which housing dominated construction spending.The total spent on construction last year through November was up 4.4 percent to $1.3 trillion, from $1.26 trillion during the same 11 months in 2019.ADVERTISEMENTWithin the residential sector, including private and public projects, construction spending in November was up 16 percent year-over-year.The sectors that saw spending fall the most included lodging, down 26.5 percent; and manufacturing and amusement and recreation projects, both down nearly 15 percent.The biggest annual percentage increase was in public safety projects with more than $15 billion during November, compared to about $12 billion a year earlier.November marked the fifth straight month that private nonresidential construction spending dropped, and the fifth time in six months that public nonresidential spending fell.The decline in non-residential projects is worrying the Associated General Contractors of America, which forecasted that the volume of projects for contractors to bid on in 2021 will be “even more meager.” The trade group is advocating for Congress to increase investment in infrastructure projects to help make up for the shortfall.“Without additional measures to boost demand for nonresidential construction, this year is likely to be a challenging one for the industry,” said Stephen E. Sandherr, CEO of the organization, in a release.Read moreSingle-family housing starts now at 2007 bubble levelExisting home sales fall for the first time in 5 monthsHousing drives rise in construction spending October Email Address* The housing market’s record year in 2020 was driven by a surge in demand from wealthier buyers able to work from anywhere searching for more space, and less well-heeled buyers taking advantage of historically low interest rates. Rising prices triggered by the strong demand and limited supply have shut many of the latter out of the market, and sales numbers have begun to slow.But despite indicators of a potential slowdown, economists forecast that the housing market will continue to soar into 2021 given the historic low level of supply, which is keeping homebuilders happy.November’s residential construction spending was dominated by new single-family homes, up 18 percent year-over-year, seasonally adjusted. In November, single-family housing starts reached levels not seen since 2007. Spending on new multifamily projects during the month was also up nearly 16 percent.Contact Erin Hudson Full Name* Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink Share via Shortlink Message* TagsCommercial Real EstateConstructionResidential Real Estate
The depletion of shallow-water fish stocks through overexploitation has led to increasing fishing pressure on deep-sea species. Poor knowledge of the biology of commercially valuable deep-water fish has led to the serial depletion of stocks of several species across the world. Data regarding the genetic structure of deep-sea fish populations is important in determining the impact of overfishing on the overall genetic variability of species and can be used to estimate the likelihood of recolonisation of damaged populations through immigration of individuals from distant localities. Here the genetic structure of the commercially fished deep-water species the blackspot sea bream, Pagellus bogaraveo is investigated in the northeastern Atlantic using partial DNA sequencing of mitochondrial cytochrome b (cyt-b) and D-loop regions and genotyping of microsatellite loci. An absence of variation in cyt-b and low genetic variation in D-loop sequences potentially indicate that P. bogaraveo may have undergone a severe bottleneck in the past. Similar bottlenecks have been detected in other Atlantic species of fish and have possibly originated from the last glaciation. P. bogaraveo may have been particularly vulnerable to the effects of low temperature and a fall in sea level because stages of its life history occur in shallow water and coastal sites. However, there are other explanations of low genetic variability in populations of P. bogaraveo, such as a low population size and the impacts of fishing on population structure. Analysis of population structure using both D-loop and microsatellite analysis indicates low to moderate, but significant, genetic differentiation between populations at a regional level. This study supports studies on other deep-sea fish species that indicate that hydrographic or topographic barriers prevent dispersal of adults and/or larvae between populations at regional and oceanographic scales. The implications for the management and conservation of deep-sea fish populations are discussed.
