Southwest Area Council

Southwest Area Council

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 Southwest Area – where historic, stately structures remain and businesses churn – is home to an eclectic, multi-cultural population and an equally diverse business community. It includes the thriving hospital district and the nationally renowned Fort Worth Zoo, along with several manufacturing and distribution facilities along the I-35 corridor. During the past decade, the near south area has seen a strong revitalization of mixed housing, commercial, and industrial property.  The Southwest Area also features Hulen Mall and Mira Vista golf course and neighborhood. Prestiguous private school educations are available here, at institutions such as Country Day and Trinity Valley. Finally, with Texas Christian University. Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, and Tarrant County College South Campus, it is a hotbed of higher education offerings.

The Chisholm Trail Parkway, a 27.6-mile toll road extending from downtown Fort Worth south to Cleburne, was an idea more than 50 years in the making. Now it connects drivers to their destination faster, safer and easier.
