The Bridge as Public Space: Plan El Paso cited in a recent TEDx talk by Carlos Gallinar

Carlos Gallinar, El Paso’s Deputy Director for City Development and Planning, recently gave a TEDx talk about the healing and humane benefits that could be realized with a true bi-national civic space bridging the border between El Paso and Ciudad Juarez. Such a civic space was envisioned in George Kessler’s historic 1925 City Plan for El Paso. This vision was reinvigorated in Plan El Paso, the update to the City’s Comprehensive Plan produced by Dover, Kohl & Partners, and adopted in 2013.
