City of El Paso agrees to temporary restraining order

EL PASO, TEXAS - The City of El Paso has agreed to extend the temporary restraining order it got last month regarding the build out in Duranguito for the proposed downtown arena. This now means no one can tear down buildings in downtown El Paso.

An Austin judge handed down the temporary restraining order a few weeks ago, at the time, the City told NewsChannel9 that was for future demolition permits, but that building owners who'd previously gotten demo permits could move forward.

On Thursday, Texas Rio Grande Legal Aid calls this a win saying the temporary injunction order keeps all buildings in tact until that same Austin judge holds another hearing July 17th.

That hearing will look into whether the City's wording on its bond back in 2012, allows for the build-out of a new arena in downtown El Paso.
