Council Approves 20 City-wide Neighborhood Improvement Program Projects

On Tuesday, the El Paso City Council approved staff recommendations for 20 Neighborhood Improvement Program (NIP) projects. These projects were submitted by various neighborhood associations throughout the city and recommended by the Department of Community and Human Development – Neighborhood Services Division.

The purpose of the NIP is to provide recognized neighborhood associations and civic associations with the opportunity to request small-scale permanent physical improvement projects to enhance the quality of life in their neighborhoods.

The process allows for residents to have direct input on physical improvements in their area. Funds for the current round are distributed equally throughout each District at an amount of $100,000.

If a District has remaining funds from a previous round, those funds then rollover to the following round. During this current round of the program more than $977,000 will be invested in these communities.
