The slide below is what city staff is recommending that the city do relative to the “Lost Dog Trail” and other land where we voted with the following language to create an ordinance:
Shall an ordinance be approved to preserve in its natural state, for all time, the 1,107 acres
owned by the City of El Paso and referred to as “Tax Increment Reinvestment Zone Number
Twelve,” which includes the “Lost Dog Trail,” and to prohibit, for all time, any private development and
any major public roadways on said 1,107 acres?
This seems reasonable to me. I think it says that the city would not have to buy the land and that after the restrictive covenants are created the land will be preserved.
I assume that changing the covenants would require city council action and supposedly the public would have an opportunity to weigh in at that time.
What do y’all think?
We deserve better
