Really, a new 6,0000 sq ft. home for $110,000? Wow, what a steal. Where in Horizon is that house located?? I'm surely interested in it.

yeah those houses are bringing the value down thanks to desert view and saratoga

I came here to Horizon ten years ago and it was small and the only store was Horizon Vista. You could hand feed the rabbits and it was very quiet. Now the growth is really showing, we would like to have big stores move in like Walmart and Lowes.

More sprawl. Horizon city could be an innovator in smart growth. Instead they're looking to become the next vanilla suburb. Sad indeed.

This is clearly good news. It is Horizon City--not the Westside, not Maquilas, not claiming to be Texan--that will make Horizon City the next Mesa, perhaps the next Scottsdale. I've revisited the El Paso area after an absence of 16 years, and it was Horizon City that showed the good sense planning.
And industry: only manufacturing, whether true fabrication or assembly, creates the basically permanent middle-class and upper middle-class stability and potential ongoing improvement that drives the long-term development of a "good place to live and work."
Never mind that the high desert around El Paso is the best climate in the US.
If we ever were to return to the area of our birth and family history, it would be to Horizon City or maybe Mountain Park. I think that new development on the West Side, being almost entirely "starter homes," is just a new Ranchland Hills, a new Hacienda Heights, with the eventual pink and purple houses and old cars on the dessicated lawns. Not that I care for what's happened to our old neighborhood in Chaparral Park, anyway.
El Pasoans need to get with the idea of being Amrican--just having mariachis and enchiladas is not going to make El Paso attractive to the kinds of companies that usually go to the Valley of the Sun, Albuquerque, Salt Lake, and Austin.

They really could develop it smartly, with homes surrounding parks and stuff like that. But all these developers care about is money. So sad.

I agree with everything you say except for one item: I really don't think anyone should be aspiring to be like bland Mesa or Snobsdale, AZ. But that's my personal opinion

They should buy the Horizon golf course from who ever owns it, it would make the best park in El Paso.
