Precinct 1 stretches from the Southwest corner of the county, beginning west of Benbrook, following Fort Worth neighborhoods to north of Arlington then south toward Everman, Forest Hill, Town of Edgecliff Village, Crowley and Burleson. Precinct 1 combines urban and rural communities along with diversity of its citizenry.
The next national Census will be taking place in April 2020. Every 10 years, all U.S. residents, regardless of citizenship status, are required to be counted. Tarrant County is working with area cities and local partners to encourage everyone, including those who live in hard-to-count areas, to take part.
Why is it important?
The Census impacts federal funding, the number of Congressional seats for each state, redistricting, economic development and quality of life. But the Census is legally bound not to share your information with other government agencies.

The 4th Annual Healthy Lives Matter Alzheimer’s Education Seminar was held on Saturday, August 17, 2019 at Tarrant County College Trinity River Campus. Over 300 participants, healthcare professionals and volunteers were in attendance with 37 vendors providing dementia support services and other essential resources.
Sessions included a focus on sibling relationships, mental health and the aging population, the future of prevention, cost of care, brain health in women, and enhancing care through communication and activity. Dementia Live, a high-impact dementia simulation experience immersed participants into life with dementia, resulting in a deeper understanding of what it’s like to live with cognitive impairment and sensory change. Commissioner Brooks shared his own personal story as a caregiver and how this devastating disease not only impacts a family or a community, but an entire nation.
The event was made possible and offered free of charge by the generous support of our partners and sponsors: Alzheimer’s Association North Central Texas Chapter, Tarrant County College Trinity River Campus, United Way Area Agency on Aging, Amerigroup, and the University of North Texas Health Science Center Fort Worth.
