Updated On: Jul 09, 2021
The El Paso City Council unanimously voted on Tuesday to approve a deal with the Public Service Board to transfer 306 acres of land in Northeast El Paso for the construction of the city’s new fire and police academy.
It will be a joint facility for both departments, including a fire department headquarters and a fire vehicle maintenance and logistics center.
The land is located on Martin Luther King Jr. and Officer Andrew Barcena Dr. in Northeast El Paso. The total budget for the project is $79.1 million and the funding source comes from the 2019 Public Safety Bond that was approved by voters.
