TRO against new animal shelter denied

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Friday morning, a Lubbock judge denied a temporary restraining order to block the construction of a new animal shelter near Mackenzie Park.

Thursday, a group of residents filed a suit to stop the city of Lubbock from building the shelter. The lawsuit says an animal shelter is not a correct and proper use of a city park. Texas Parks and Wildlife code specifies that there is a procedure that must be followed to use park land for other purposes.

Councilman John Leonard, who opposed the location, said there was no public hearing as there was on other locations. He also said Mackenzie Park is not a central location, which was the original goal of the new shelter.

Both sides may return to court on Tuesday for a hearing on the future of the animal shelter.
