EL PASO, TX-The so-called “quality of life” propositions that passed Nov. 6 will do a number of things to help the city, ranging from downtown revitalization to development of a triple-A baseball park. As such, experts tell GlobeSt.com that the bonds, in excess of half a billion dollars,  are the next step in bringing El Paso to another level, so it can better compete with other Texas metropolitan centers to the east.

“What these propositions will do is help make us more competitive with other Texas cities,” comments William Blaziek, general manager with the El Paso Convention and Visitors Bureau. “Much of our history isn’t so much what we haven’t done, but what those other cities have done. We’d fallen behind.” Giancarlo Da Prato with local commercial and residential real estate company GDP Realty puts it another way. “The basic question comes down to, what is there to do on the weekends,” he notes. “What is the culture, the restaurants, and where to shop. It sounds crazy, but those are the basic fundamentals that had been preventing employers from coming to El Paso.”
