The Community First Coalition El Paso, has created a petition to terminate “The El Paso Sports Arena Project.” In the petition, the organization writes: “In response to the worst health and economic crisis in El Paso’s history, the City has implemented austerity measures, but the costliest tax-funded project—the proposed sports arena—has not yet been eliminated.” They continue: “Why the wait, City Council—CANCEL THE ARENA NOW.”
