- I'll be covering this trip to Oklahoma City by about 30 business and civic leaders from Thursday to Saturday. No elected leaders are going to this trip, which is being coordinated by the Greater El Paso Chamber of Commerce. Several El Paso elected, civic and community leaders who have been working on the city's long-term development plan have visited Oklahoma City the past few years. This group hopes to learn how the once struggling city has become a national model for revitalization: At least six cities this year alone are visiting Oklahoma to learn about its transformation.
