Haltom City has a unique personality. While it offers numerous amenities and features such as a rich history, distinctive restaurants, and close proximity to downtown Fort Worth, its real character is in the spirit of the people. Haltom City is a family friendly town of nearly 40,000 residents and 1,300 businesses. State-of-the-art amenities include new municipal facilities, including a new library, Central Fire Station, Municipal Services Station and Animal Services Facility, as well as walking trails, Evos play structures, a water "sprayground" and a thriving youth sports program. The city's public education is provided by the respected Birdville Independent School District (BISD). BISD is unique in that it pays for graduating seniors' first year tuition at one of the area's Tarrant County College campuses.

One of the goals of this new website is to give residents, visitors and people looking to re-locate their home or business a place where our city's unique qualities and advantages can be displayed in a centralized location.

HALTOM CITY, TEXAS (June 21, 2011) – Access to adult education became easier for Haltom City area residents as Haltom City and Tarrant County College Northeast dedicated the new Northeast Training/Learning Center at a recent ribbon cutting. This new educational center is housed in the recently renovated Haltom City Civic Center at 3201 Friendly Lane, Haltom City.

The initiative began when Haltom City officials met with college officials to find ways to make higher education more accessible to local residents. The College proposed the use of the Civic Center to meet the challenge.

“The Civic Center, which previously served as the City’s library, was refurbished for special events, but largely remained vacant,” said Chuck Barnett, Haltom City’s Assistant City Manager. “Utilizing the Civic Center as an avenue to provide higher education is an immeasurable investment for the residents and the local community, which will also help drive economic development in Haltom City.”

Chesapeake Energy Corporation provided the funding for the finishing touches on the new training/learning center. Chesapeake’s donation will be used to furnish many of the common areas with comfortable furniture for both faculty and students.

According to the College, the 5,000-square-foot space will allow the Northeast Campus to better serve the growing area by offering courses previously unavailable because of space constraints. College officials also said plans could include a dance studio with appropriate flooring and equipment. Courses being considered for the Northeast Training/Learning Center include English composition, art appreciation, chemistry, developmental math, government and history.

The Center could provide tuition-free courses in Adult Basic Education, General Equivalency Development and English as a Second Language, according to the College.

“The opening of the Haltom City Northeast Center is a wonderful opportunity for Tarrant County College to reach out into the community to provide better access for students to college,” said Dr. Larry Darlage, President of TCC Northeast. “We appreciate the vision by Haltom City leaders to propose this partnership and the generous support from Chesapeake Energy to help make this center a reality.”
