El Pasoans have one more chance to help shape a trio of big ticket construction projects slated for construction around the Sun City.

The City of El Paso is seeking public input for the three signature projects of the voter-approved 2012 Quality of Life Bond program. The projects include the new Children's Museum, Hispanic Cultural Center, and Multipurpose Cultural and Performing Arts Facility, often referred to as the "Downtown arena."

The City will host its fourth and final public workshop on July 2. It will begin at 6pm in the Rio Grande Room of the El Paso Convention Center

The meeting will be led by HKS, Inc., the urban design firm unanimously selected by El Paso's City council to recommend possible facility sites, site uses, and amenities for the projects.

Complimentary parking will be provided in the Convention Center garage, and real-time English-to-Spanish translation services will be provided.

The $473,250,000 Quality of Life Bond was approved by 71 percent of El Paso voters in November of 2012.
