Sports Referendum Results


By Rick Horrow and Karla Swatek

November 9, 2012

El Paso voters on Election Day approved funding for $525 million worth of public infrastructure projects, including a minor league baseball stadium for the San Diego Padres’ Triple-A affiliate and a $180 million multipurpose arena. The 3-to-1 margin of victory is possibly the largest ever for a bond referendum of this magnitude. In total, the bonds cover more than 85 projects in 14 unique categories. The El Paso bond project was modeled after the Metropolitan Area Projects plan in Oklahoma City and integrated infrastructure initiatives in Jacksonville, Wichita, Tampa, Phoenix, and other cities.

The other major sports measure on the ballot, Miami’s plan to upgrade Crandon Park Tennis Center, also received resounding support. Though the $50 million renovation will only use private funds generated through the Sony Open, 60% of voters needed to back the proposal because of a Miami amendment that protects public land.
