Lubbock Animal Shelter activists react to new location

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The City of Lubbock acquired the land for the final location of a new animal shelter. The new 15 acre site is located inside Southeast Loop 289, near 66th Street, and Guava Avenue. Mayor Tom Martin announced the location Friday afternoon. The price tag for the property is around $218,000.

This comes after some controversy over the last location the Lubbock City Council picked for the animal shelter. A group of citizens filed a law suit when the council announced they would put the shelter at Mackenzie Park. 

Nadia Gonzales, who was involved in the suit, says she approves the new location, "People want it built, and I think as long as it's not in a park, it's not near a residential area, and people do not oppose the site, then I think it's a perfect site."  

Lubbock City Council should approve the purchase of the land during a special city council meeting on Tuesday.
