El Paso City Council might prepare a plan to finance the restoration of the Lincoln Center in South Central El Paso. This item has been postponed for four weeks. City officials and community members have expressed reopening the center for community us. As we've reported, the TxDot owned facility would have been demolished in late May. El Paso filed a couple of injunctions which delayed the demolition. The state agency agreed to delay demolition until October 2014, if the city drops the injunction and a suit against TxDot. TxDot, however, has not guaranteed that it will not move forward with removing the building. The state agency has said they want to remove the facility to make room for I-10 expansion.

Council will also review luxury box uses at Southwest University Park. They will discuss past attendees and departments which use the box. 

Report tonight.
