Quality of Life Bond Issue Community Meeting

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.

All meetings are at 6:00pm

Jan. 24th - El Paso Room - Downtown (inside Judson F. Williams Convention Center)

Jan. 25th - Northeast Regional Command Center - 9600 Dyer St.

Jan. 25th - Pebble Hills Regional Command Center - 10780 Pebble Hills

I think that we need more walking and bike paths in the city! Particularly the Eastside, Central, and Northeast need more walking and bike paths. Having more paths helps our city to increase the quality of life here by making exercise a priority! Please increase our quality of life and beautify our city with walking & bike paths & parks!
