If you voted 'yes' in the Quality of Life bond elections last year, you're about to start seeing that money being put to good use.  The Northeast Regional Park is going to get bigger and better, and when the project is completed, it will be music to skateboarders ears!


Construction crews are going to start building a skate park and putting in more parking at the park at 11270 McCombs.  El Paso City Council approved the 1.4 million dollar improvements yesterday.

In addition to the skate park and parking, landscaping will also be upgraded, and the new and improved park should be finished by January of next year.  This is the first project to come out of the 473 million dollar quality-of-life bonds.

City Rep. Carl Robinson said he is thrilled about the project in his district.  He said the park first took shape with money from the 2000 quality of life bond election.  Robinson went on to say that completing the park has been a long time in the making.

The park will also see more five more athletic fields to enhance the three that are already there.
