If you were really born and raised in the "Mission Valley", you would remember Socorro Road was covered by cottonwoods trees from beginning to end, Ysleta to Fabens and city people of El Paso going for a ride in the country, having picnics.

Yes. Replant the trees. Establish strict building codes as in Santa Fe so the area will not lose it's charm. Preserve it from becoming another bland strip mall concrete paved over eyesore!
