The City of El Paso has started a social media campaign to provide the public information about the development of the new arena project in downtown El Paso.

The $180 million Multipurpose Cultural and Performing Arts Center, which was approved by the voters as part of the 2012 Quality of Life Bonds will provide a venue for athletic, performance, cultural and recreational events in the heart of El Paso’s Downtown.

The process to begin negotiations to acquire land in downtown for the development of an indoor arena was approved by City Council earlier this week. Community meetings are being scheduled to provide impacted property owners and tenants with the opportunity to discuss the land acquisition process and the development of the arena.  The arena design process will involve additional public meetings.
