The community has provided its input and the final plans for the Paseo de las Luces project are set.
Community members are invited to the final Paseo de las Luces community meeting from on Wednesday, in the lobby of the Mills Building (300 N. Oregon Street) from 5 to 7:30 p.m.
Residents will be able to check out the plans for what city official call a “bright, glittering corridor of signature archways, vibrant tree lights, festive string lights, improved parking and stalls for food trucks that will beautify and link the core of Downtown El Paso to Ciudad Juárez.”
The Paseo de las Luces project is part of the City of El Paso’s Sun City Lights initiative. The initiative was created to capitalize on the distinct identities of several of the most vibrant neighborhoods all across El Paso. The Paseo de las Luces will stretch along South El Paso Street from the Plaza Theatre to the Paso del Norte International Bridge.
In 2008, the American Planning Association named South El Paso Street one of the ten great streets in America for its architectural importance and cultural significance, calling it the place “where American and Mexican cultures come face to face.”
The City of El Paso has contracted with in*situ architecture of El Paso to design this project. in*situ has provided design services for other city projects including the John Mulligan Building, the Eastside Regional Park Recreation Center and the Westside Pool.
Residents are invited to come see what’s in store for this beautiful and historic El Paso neighborhood.
