Will The El Paso Chihuahuas Stadium Be The Greenest Building In El Paso

When I say “greenest” I am not talking about all the cash it took to build this controversial stadium.  That’s a whole ‘nother blog.I’m referring to the fact that construction of Southwest University Park is being done with an eye toward the environment!  According to

When thousands of El Pasoans enter Southwest University Park to watch the El Paso Chihuahuas take on opponents, they’ll be doing so in one of the most sustainable, environmentally-friendly buildings in El Paso.

Southwest University Park is currently seeking a LEEDS certification.  The LEEDS application is based on many things, including:

  • • Reliance on existing parking infrastructure;
  • • Addition of bicycle parking facilities adjacent to the ballpark.
  •   Proximity to Sun Metro’s new Brio Rapid Transit System.
  • • Reducing the amount of stormwater which will run off the site.
  • • Recycling the vast majority of construction and demolition waste produced by the project.
  • • Use of recycled and regionally-sourced construction materials.

Love it, hate it or be “Ehhhh” about it; it’s here and the season is about to start with EP taking on Reno.  At least when they start their home stand, we can sip a beer at the games with environmentally clear consciences!
