Community & Economic Development

For developers, real estate brokers and retailers, the City of Forest Hill offers plentiful land at the hub of four major North Texas growth regions: Arlington, Mansfield, Fort Worth and Kennedale.  Additionally, the city offers limitless access to commuters along the primary route from the southwest Metroplex to the Mid-Cities, Fort Worth and Dallas. With thousands of employees working at the various businesses surrounding the city, students attending classes at the Tarrant County College South Campus, and those with appointments at the Veterans Administration Outpatient Clinic, Forest Hill is a prime regional location for retail and restaurant development.
