New ‘All-America City’ Signs to Welcome Drivers to El Paso

New signs at the five entrances into El Paso will showcase the community as one of the great cities in America.

“To maximize our visibility and promote our achievements we are replacing old signs by the highways with new ones highlighting our status as an All-America City. This effort should entice travelers to take a closer look at our City of Champions,” said Mayor Dee Margo.

On average, each day more than 300,000 vehicles pass through the city limits of El Paso, the nation’s 19th largest city and the sixth largest in Texas. Last year alone the economic impact of visitors to El Paso exceeded $3 million.

El Paso has earned three All-America titles, the most recent one awarded this year by the National Civic League. The organization recognizes communities each year for outstanding civic accomplishments.

To earn the recognition, each community must demonstrate innovation, inclusiveness, civic engagement, and cross sector collaboration by describing successful efforts to address pressing local challenges.

The City earned the other awards in 1969 and 2010.

Installation on the new 6-feet wide and 3-feet tall aluminum roads signs has begun and should be completed by early December. The work is being done by the City’s Streets and Maintenance Department.
