The City of El Paso is teaming up with the Downtown Management District and the Camino Real Regional Mobility Authority (CRRMA) to fund a study that would assess the need for a new parking facility in Downtown.
This image shows a concept parking structure encased by liner buildings that could be used for housing, office, or retail, from the Design Manual of Plan El Paso.

The three parties will contribute $20,000 each toward the study for a total of $60,000. The area of focus will be near the new City Hall.

The CRRMA will manage the development of the study and will most likely award the contract to Atkins North America, Inc., the General Engineering Consultant for the Authority. The study should be completed within one year of the agreement’s start date.


  1. The city block right across the city hall building would be ideal for a new downtown parking garage since the city already owns that property! I don't see why they just don't build it instead of wasting 60 grand to do a study.
    That very same property would have been nice to build a state or the art city hall with maybe underground parking! but this is just a thought.I can't see the city operating out of a former news paper building for ever. As I have seen other city's such as San Jose California construct a a very nice city government edifice. But will see, after all these are just studies to see if downtown needs more parking garages which shouldn't be that hard to figure out that it does.

  2. I agree, cities like San Jose and Phoenix have built new modern and tall City Hall structures over the last decade or so. El Paso should think about doing the same.

  3. Your investigation condition is your very own examination asylum. It should just be utilized for contemplating, however for some individuals this isn't a choice.

  4. Informative post! I really like and appreciate your work, thank you for sharing such a useful information about Retail management strategies, keep updating the information, hear i prefer some more information about jobs for your career hr jobs in hyderabad .

  5. The first thing that comes into my head is a noisy environment. Kids shouting and running, worst, they will be knocking on your door repeatedly, if you won't open it in 3 seconds.

  6. As such, most students invest a long time in school learning things that won't be valuable to them when school days are courses
