a place to call home
Haltom City is now part of the Everbridge public safety communications platform. We have launched an upgraded public notification service that allows us to provide community alerts in a more efficient manner. This program also gives us the ability to maximize our reach when immediate notifications are necessary in "imminent threat to life" situations.
If you already receive NIXLE alerts your data will transfer over, but you are encouraged to create a new account and add your contact and location information and subscribe. You can stop receiving notifications at any time by removing your contact information from your profile.
A Contractor working at 2913 Eastridge Dr. has requested a full street closure from Tuesday, May 30 - Friday, June 2, 2023 in order to make a sewer service connection under the street. The approved traffic control plan depicts the exact location of the work.
Variable message boards have been installed to provide advance notice of the street closure to the traveling public.
This year’s Northeast Tarrant Family 4th event will take place on Monday, July 3, 2023.
This year's event will feature:
Fireworks can be viewed from the parking lots of the Wiley G. Thomas Coliseum, 6108 Broadway Avenue in Haltom City, and BISD Plaza, 6351 Boulevard 26 in North Richland Hills. Parking will be available on a first come first served basis, so plan to come early. Vehicles will not be allowed to park along the street.
Feel free to bring chairs, blankets, and games for the family to play while waiting for the fireworks. However, no outdoor cooking or grilling devices and no alcohol or personal fireworks will be permitted. In the event of inclement weather, all festivities and the fireworks show will be rescheduled to Wednesday, July 5th.
“After the challenging years we have had to endure, we are proud to continue helping our communities come together to celebrate our freedom and history with this fantastic fireworks show!” says Jack Bradshaw, President and CEO of the Northeast Tarrant Chamber of Commerce.
This free patriotic event is made possible thanks to the support of the cities of Haltom City, North Richland Hills, Richland Hills, and Watauga as well as the event title sponsors: Five Star Ford and Medical City North Hills.
The new Haltom City Fire Station #3, located at 5011 Old Denton Rd., is now in operation and is housing shifts. Expected to be the busiest fire station in the city, Station #3 will house eight firefighters, one front line engine, one ladder truck and one reserve engine
Architecturally, the new fire station brings state of the art facilities to north Haltom City. A cost efficient solution, the new building was constructed using pre-engineered steel framing systems. The environmentally efficient envelope enclose the functional spaces within a masonry and stucco skin.
The roof is constructed of an insulated metal panel system that provides an energy code compliant system that sandwiches 6” rigid foam between metal interior and exterior skins, leaving clean surfaces on both sides and eliminating the need for secondary interior ceiling systems (which age more rapidly).
The new Station #3 replaces the now decommissioned station that was under the IH820 water tower.
In May 2022 Haltom City voters passed a bond election authorizing the construction of a new City Hall. The new building will be located just south of the Haltom City Public Library, at the corner of Glenview Dr. and Haltom Rd. The scheduled completion date of the new City Hall is August 2024. A groundbreaking was held on February 21, 2023.
City services that will be operating out of the new facility include:
The current City Hall facility was originally constructed 65 years ago, in 1957. Haltom City’s population has subsequently increased by over 100%, with an additional 5,000 to 6,000 more residents expected to relocate here within the next 5 years. A needs assessment, completed in 2013, showed the current City Hall no longer met industry standards in terms of space, functionality, and requirements set forth in the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The new facility will be built to comply with all ADA and code requirements, including installation of modern safety and energy standards.
