Sharing recreation facilities

This item was on the Tuesday, April 14, 2020  EPISD board of trustees agenda:

Administration is recommending an Interlocal Agreement with the City of El Paso for an existing ball field located at Washington Park (Hugo Meyer). The District would commit to improving a baseball field, improve/construct parking, and related facilities. The District will coordinate use with the City, but at a minimum will have exclusive use for baseball games and practices.


The District would be responsible for the design and construction.  Maintenance will be shared with the City, and each entity will provide general daily baseball field maintenance during their respective periods of use.  EPISD will be responsible for the baseball netting.  The City of El Paso will be responsible for the care of the turf, irrigation, fencing, lighting, and all structural baseball components.


The initial term would be for 30 years, with two 10-year automatic extensions.

Shared use

What they are talking about doing is sharing a city owned ball field with the school district.

This is better

    Which one will raise your taxes first? The city or EPISD? Yeah, good luck with this one.

    Why is this even being discussed now when both school and sporting events are cancelled and when the city is facing a financial crisis?
