What is not mentioned is that the County stole the land from it's rightful owner by using eminent domain laws.

Hoopla, hoopla, hoopla, blah, blah, blah, exciting, I think not! What is about to happen is the continued coloniazation of El Paso County. Leaders I ask you: Where is the stewardship? There is nothing more beautiful than to see alfalfa being cut and cotton growing in the valley. Tornillo you are about to become part of the cookie cutter rat race I live in.

With this industrial park will come businesses. All this brings jobs, I cannot deny, could be a plus? What then will happen will the development of subdivisions. You can only hope it is this vs. colonias. I will give the colonia gente credit because they choose to buy land and claim something of their own vs. taking a handout. The bad thing and "voy a decir la verdad" is that the lots become major eyesores. Leaders, regulate this, and make colonia guidelines and create paths to them having something halfway decent looking, ya basta.

When these subs do go up, Put all the growth in the vast expanse of the desert, please!!!!!

Farmers and widows (inevitable), you are the first to complain about dirtiness and trashiness but when the offer comes $$$$$ eventually you decide to take care of your "family". So I will put this on "y'all" too.

Not so. The land for the industrial park was purchased privately. You're thinking of the farmers whose land is where the customs station will be located.
