Opinion from Save the Stacks

Save the Stacks remains hopeful that Asarco Trustee Roberto Puga will find a solution to preserve the stack as part of the redevelopment of the site.

The stack could serve as the country’s tallest monument, highlighting our economic history and the paying respect to the Asarco workers as well as serving as the centerpiece and beacon of a redeveloped Asarco site.

We have seen that Roberto Puga has been motivated to go beyond his initial charge by creating a vision for the redevelopment of the site that is in keeping with this community’s values. He has been resourceful and creative in helping capture our community’s vision and ambition for the site.

We ask that he again go above and beyond by working with us, the city and other community leaders to find a way to preserve the stack for El Paso.
