It is the mission of the Fort Worth Chamber’s Area councils to enhance their respective geographical area by focusing on promotion of business, education and community. The primary goals of each Area Council Board will be to identify, inform and promote the interests of their membership within the boundaries of their Area Council and within the overall program and policies of the Fort Worth Chamber of Commerce.
The East Area of the city boasts a combination of historic roadways, business districts, and neighborhoods, along with new shopping centers and residential areas cropping up between Fort Worth and Arlington in the past 15 years. With easy access to Interstate 30 and Loop 820, it is the gateway from Dallas into Tarrant County. Texas Wesleyan University and East Lancaster corridor are part of the area’s rich history, and revitalization of Lancaster through the Main Street Project will continue to provide cultural vibrancy and economic opportunities. This prominent area includes Alcon, Coors Distribution plant, the Meals on Wheels Home Office, and Fort Woof Dog Park within Gateway Park. The East Area extends all the way to the Centreport business park near DFW Airport.
Fort Woof is Fort Worth’s first off-leash dog park, an ideal place for dogs and their owners to have fun. Fort Woof has two large fenced areas for dogs to roam, a “large dog” side for dogs 40 pounds and more and a separate “small dog” side for dogs weighing less than 40 pounds.
