You improve your hometown by getting involved and making a difference. We have conducted many cleanups and have given the city the needs of the community.

I love that long park there on Edgemere near Burges High School.. Wish they would make more streets like that one. I would love to see them redo Fairbanks to be something like that.. since Transmountain will someday have a highway down it. Or heck redo Sun Valley near Andress to be like that. With all the new building going on, if El Paso would add more green spaces it would not seem so depressing with all the brown homes on brown dirt, next to brown mountains.. we need more green.

Thank you for the history, Miner72. I recall going there as a child in the 60s, and it seemed new to me, so I was about 20 years off!

What is "fising"?
