The Urban Renewal Agency is holding a land rush Saturday, January 18th. A number of lots in North and East Lubbock are up for sale. There are no minimum bids. If no one else, makes a higher-bid the land is yours. The only condition is that you build a home or business on that land within nine months. It's part of the city council's plan to redevelop that part of the city.
Nancy Haney of the Urban Renewal Agency says, "The more people that live in the area, the more businesses will come in. This will get the area cycling up instead of down."
The Urban Renewal Land Rush will be at the Lubbock Civic Center in rooms 104 and 105. The bidding will begin at 10 a.m. Saturday morning. All bids will be accepted in sealed envelopes. If you would like to see a list of the lots up for bid ( click here ).
