City of El Paso host first comprehensive plan meeting

EL PASO, Texas (KVIA)-- Today the City of El Paso hosted the first of many comprehensive plan meetings.

The city invited residents to come out and provide feedback on what they feel the city needs. Some of the topic covered are housing affordability, fiscal responsibility, economic development, mobility choice and equity.

It's been more than a decade since the plan was created, now the city of El Paso's Capital Improvement Department is updating the plan to reflect the updates of the city. One resident I spoke with said he would like a senior citizen's center or a community center in his neighborhood. Another resident said he would like to see some zoning changes, particularly on Alameda Street. He said he would like more grocery stores and different types of amenities instead for the car dealerships that are currently in that area.

Aine Garcia said she would like to see more HIV education and voter comprehension in the community. Casi Schnell, Capital planning project manager said theses meetings help the city prioritize and implement projects or policy.

The next meeting will be held July 18 at Valle Bajo Community Center located at 7380 Alamedaor Ave El Paso, TX 79915 from 4:30 p.m to 6:30 p.m.
