The city recently opened the Eastside sports complex which features seven soccer fields and one championship soccer field.
The complex was funded as part of the 2012 quality of life bonds.
This is the kind of project that serves our community well.
We enjoy weather that allows outdoor sports year-round. Having places where our youngsters can exercise and enjoy being outdoors adds to the quality of living in El Paso.
As a community we should insist on more efforts to capitalize on our weather. When looking at places to move to, schools and recreation are significant in people’s decision making.
If we improve our schools and take more advantage of our climate we will be more attractive to companies that might consider moving to town.
We cannot afford expensive projects but instead should spend what money we have on projects that improve our quality of life.
This is better
