Statement regarding the lease agreement between the City and UTPB.
For 25 years, the City of Odessa and the University of Texas Permian Basin have been in a lease agreement. This agreement has served our city well and provided many recreation activities for both adults and children.
However, with the current UTPB associations in mind, the City and the University were unable able to reach an agreement that was suitable for all parties. Therefore, the City has decided to not renew the lease agreement.
We are confident that under the guidance of the University, UTPB Park will continue to be an asset and a place for recreation for all local residents and sports associations for many years to come.
The City and UTPB desire to continue working together on various other projects which will benefit the entire community.
