Work begins on south El Paso community center

The City of El Paso has three community recreation centers in the works through out the city.

This week, preliminary work started in south El Paso for the Chamizal Community Recreation Center, located at 2119 Cypress Avenue.

An existing building will be partly demolished to make room for the center that will include a library and computer lab combination.

The work should be complete by this fall and construction of the community center will follow shortly after.

City officials said the centers are part of the city’s commitment to improve neighborhoods. The projects are a result of the 2012 Quality of Life Bond.

The two other community centers are located in El Paso’s Lower Valley, 7380 Alameda Ave. and 709 Lomita Dr. A completion date for those centers have not yet been announced by city officials.

All three projects will cost a combined $33 million, the price tag includes land acquisitions, project management, design, construction and public art.
