City sets date for public hearing on animal shelter location

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - City officials set a date for a public hearing about Lubbock's new animal shelter. 

A public hearing demanded by those opposed to the planned shelter location, will be held July 28th. The City Council will hold the meeting to hear comments on and to make a ruling on using Mackenzie Park as the new location.

At Tuesday's City Council meeting, many residents expressed their feelings over using Mackenzie Park. "Nobody's against the animal shelter. We're against where it is and how it was put there. You're dumping it on us and we don't like it and we're gonna fight it as hard as we can as long as we can," said Eddie Richardson during citizen comments at Tuesday's meeting.

At July's hearing, both sides will be discussing whether building an animal shelter is an appropriate use of park land.
