Protesters Collect 1,500+ Signatures Against Baseball Stadium

Tuesday, July 31, 2012 - 3:39pm

EL PASO — City Council's decision to pass a motion approving plans to build a downtown baseball stadium faces opposition from registered voters. They planned to gather in front of City Hall Tuesday at 4 p.m.

Members from the group Quality of Life Voters (QOL) said they've gathered over 1,500 signatures from voters opposed to what they are calling a "secret and arbitrary process in violation of city policies." The proposed baseball stadium would require the destruction of City Hall, Insights Museum and a community garden plot.

Members said the goal of the organization is that Quality of Life decisions in El Paso, Texas not be imposed without prior voter approval.
