City Set to Reveal ‘Master Plan’ for Cohen Stadium January 31st

Next week, officials with the City of El Paso will unveil the comprehensive master plan for the Cohen site and will present the next objectives to make the plan a reality.

The development of the comprehensive master plan included a public outreach phase that invited the general public to offer their thoughts on potential future uses for the site, a focus group to assess and modify a draft of the plan, and a separate focus group to validate the proposed master plan.

More than 300 residents attended the initial public meeting and provided more than 250 comments. Residents from the Northeast participated in the focus group meetings.

The site is located at 9700 Gateway Boulevard North in Northeast El Paso. Developing a comprehensive master plan is the first step in the process to evaluate the potential land uses and redevelopment alternatives for the site.

This regional project will help revitalize the Cohen area, making it a destination point for visitors, residents and businesses, and a catalyst for future development in the Northeast.

The development of a master plan is typically initiated and completed before a project enters the design phase to ensure the site is developed in an orderly, efficient, and cost-effective manner. The project is part of the City of El Paso’s commitment to enhance El Paso’s quality of life for residents, business and visitors.

  • This sounds like a done deal and similar to the Northgate proposal that included impressive lofts and retail space that would revitalize the area. The bus terminal is almost done but there is nothing on the retail that was promised. Taxpayers deserve better.

  • This is more city bs. They’re getting involved in giving owned property to private developers at tax payer expense.
