Street Car Plan Preview

Imagining the Future of the El Paso Streetcar Corridor

The Planning & Inspections Department of the City of El Paso, in conjunction with the offices of Representatives Svarzbein and Lizzaraga invite you to attend an interactive mapping exercise to provide input on the Streetcar Corridor Plan.

Citizens are invited to participate in an interactive hop-on/hop-off bus route that takes them along the North and South streetcar loops with different stops along the way.  At each stop, there will be different points of interests on a walking tour along with hosts to share some of their perspectives on a variety of topics ranging from current conditions, potential development, history of the place, or even some of the nuisances or obstacles to the growth or preservation of that specific area.

There will be two tour opportunities, morning and afternoon, where both the North and South loops will be completed and participants will then have a chance to engage in an interactive mapping exercise directed by artist Graham Coreil-Allen. This will be an opportunity to voice ideas, concerns, and be an active participant in envisioning the future of the streetcar corridor.

Seats are limited and are on a first come, first serve basis.  Participation will be limited to 50 people per tour (100 people total).  Lunch will be provided for the morning tour. Refreshments will also be provided for both the morning and afternoon.
