The project, which has been in the planning stages since 2010, was awarded federal housing tax credits in July that will allow it to move forward with construction. Groundbreaking is expected in the first quarter of 2015 with completion expected in spring of 2016.

The community meeting will take place on Tuesday, August 12, 2014, at the Rubin Center for Visual Arts on the University of Texas at El Paso campus. The meeting begins at 7:00 p.m.

Officials are expected to discuss the next steps for the project as well as providing an update on the design of the building. More information on the project is available at
