EL PASO, TX-On Nov. 6, the local population voted overwhelmingly by a 3-to-1 margin to approve two bond propositions totaling $473 million, as well as a third proposition calling for a 2% increase in the hotel occupancy tax. With voter approval, the city is ready to funnel the money toward revitalization and redevelopment plans throughout the area, while additional plans are being drawn up for a $50 million baseball stadium, which will be funded by the hotel occupancy tax.

Propositions 1, 2 and 3, dubbed “quality of life” propositions, were  hotly contested throughout the campaign season. Especially under the microscope was the baseball stadium, which will be built on what is now the site of the city hall building and Insights Science Museum.
