Personal El Pasoan Perspective!
Winton Homes is supportive of seeing natural areas conserved and the opportunity to be physically connected to our
natural and cultural heritage. We can create opportunities for our local economies to grow by investing in land for
outdoor recreation, for wildlife and water.
Such investments have a ripple effect. In addition, investment in a naturebased park, such as Castner Range National Monument, can create more jobs and lead to more visitor spending. Locally, in 2006, the Hueco Tanks State Park brought in $582,207 in county sales and $331,774 in county residents’ personal income. In 2007 Hueco Tanks and Franklin Mountains State Park brought 72,644 visitors to El Paso County (Texas State Parks, Natural Economic Assets).
