The Quality of Life Bonds are continuing to improve recreation in El Paso. Two new projects have now been funded with the bonds which were approved last year.
Two vacant lots will soon be beautiful resources for El Pasoans.
City Council voted to buy a little more than 10 acres of land on James Watt Drive and Pendale Road for $1.15 million to build a new park on the Eastside.
Also approved for purchase was the land at 7380 Alameda Avenue for $1.174 million. A recreation center/library combo facility will be designed and built at that site.
The purchase of these properties was included in the 3-year bond roll-out plan which was approved by El Paso City Council in February 2013. The purchases will be funded by the Quality of Life Bonds approved by voters in November 2012.
