El Paso Historic Landmark Commission Urges New Arena Site
El Paso's new arena is a go but, settling on a location for it continues to be an issue.
Another site, proposed by El Paso Herald Post online, suggests an area framed by Cotton, Paisano and Alameda/I-10.
There are other areas and suggestions, including an older idea to move the railroad yards farther east, (or to the old Asarco site), opening up that space.
Commissioner Daniel Cary-Whalen said, "the commission can make recommendations to the council, but the council has the final say in its decision-making process." He told the El Paso Times:
“They can do whatever they want.”
That's true and ... for good or bad ... they usually do.
