City to Host Meetings for Eastside Master Plan

The City of El Paso has scheduled three community meetings to engage the public in the development of the Eastside Master Plan study.

“The City invites the public to attend the meetings to provide their input and to ask questions related to the project, so that together we can create a comprehensive plan that will benefit everyone,” city officials shared via a news release.

The Eastside Master Plan study is being developed to evaluate and provide recommendations on municipal facilities, thoroughfares, and other infrastructure within the study area and provide tools and key policies for managing growth and development throughout the city.

City officials add, “The master plan will help ensure that East El Paso is developed in an orderly, efficient, and cost-effective manner.”

Meeting dates, times and locations are as follows

  • November 8, 2018: 6 p.m. at ESC Region 19 Head Start, 11670 Chito Samaniego Drive
  • November 13, 2018: 6 p.m. in the cafeteria of Jane A. Hambrich School, 3535 Nolan Richardson Drive
  • November 15, 2018: 6 p.m. at the Mission Valley Regional Command Center Community Room, 9011 Escobar Drive

Council Approves $400k+ for Consulting Group to Help Develop Plan to Manage City’s Growth

On Tuesday, the City Council approved a contract with Stantec Consulting Services, who will assist city officials in developing a plan to provide the framework for managing growth citywide, particularly on the Eastside.

“El Paso is growing and meeting our growth challenges means we need to be ready to maintain and expand municipal services and infrastructure in a manner that addresses the needs of our citizens while making growth areas attractive to private development,” said City of El Paso Capital Improvement Director Sam Rodriguez.

“This plan will serve as a guide for managing future public investment to deter growth from happening haphazardly,” Rodriguez added.

Council approved awarding an approximate $413,000 contract to Stantec Consulting Services, Inc.

Via a news release, city officials shared, “The firm will provide the City with the tools and key policies needed to manage growth citywide and a masterplan for managing growth on the Eastside, the City’s fastest-growing region.”

The contract is funded through the City’s 2019 Capital Plan.

“Those who live, work and visit the Eastside have told us they want a network of streets that are safe and easy to navigate, more public safety services, walkable blocks, transit-oriented development, parks and open space serving local and regional needs, libraries, unique and memorable places, destination retail, and a mix of housing options for a range of incomes. This plan will provide us with the tools and key policies to achieve a sustainable roadmap to the future,” Mayor Pro-tem Michiel Noe said.

Development of the plan will take approximately 10 months, and officials say that, “the process will include an extensive public engagement process to ensure growth areas are developed in line with the community’s vision.”
