Pre-Construction Community Meeting for Eastside Sports Complex set for Tuesday

City officials are set to hold a community meeting for residents to learn about the construction schedule for the first phase of the Eastside Sport Complex.

The first phase of development of the complex located in far east El Paso near the intersection of Montwood and John Hayes will focus on the development 42.2 acres of land, which will include the following services and amenities:

  • 7 sodded irrigated competition flat fields, and 1 championship style field
  • Shaded seating to accommodate 500 spectators
  • Fencing to maintain control access
  • A new hike and bike trail will be constructed along the perimeter of the park

The complex will also include new ADA compliant restrooms, parking, and sidewalks, as well as a sheltered area with picnic tables and benches, which will allow food trucks to serve visitors and spectators during competitions or events. As part of the project a new storage and maintenance facility will also be constructed in order to allow for the park’s upkeep.

A “Design Build” contract for the construction of this project was awarded earlier this year to Jordan Foster Construction and MNK Architects. Design Build, groups the design and construction companies for the project into one contract, which allows the City to better coordinate the entire project from start to finish.

Design and construction of the Eastside Sports Complex is funded by the 2012 Quality of Life Bonds, and is part of the City of El Paso’s commitment to enhance El Paso’s quality of life through recreational, cultural, and educational environments.
