I would recommend using the Texas Orthophoto imagery for this area.

Back when I was importing the Building footprints for Dallas, I noticed the
Bing imagery in the Dallas-Fort Worth area is at least 5 years old.

The Texas Orthophoto imagery is flown every year and I believe what shows
now is from January 2017.

Also, for what its worth, I believe the City of Fort Worth has building
footprints that could be imported, but we just need to get the explicit
