EL PASO - The City of El Paso hosted the first of several community meetings Monday night asking the public for input on what projects they would like to see in their neighborhoods.
The city is hoping to pass the proposed 2012 Quality of Life Bond issue in November. The bond will help pay for improvements to city parks, zoos, libraries and similar projects. The bond will also fund new projects that will improve El Paso neighborhoods.
After the series of meetings the city will consider which ones to put on the November ballot. That's why Bill Lilly, a community developer for El Paso, feels it's important for the public to share what projects they would like the bond to fund.
"The mayor and city council really wants input from residents to whether they would like to see more quality of life improvements in the community and what kind of improvements," said Lilly,
The city will be hosting community meetings the rest of the week throughout El Paso. If you cannot attend any of the meetings you can submit your ideas online at the city's website or at El Paso City Hall.
