Plans progressing on new Lubbock animal shelter

Posted by Ben Lawson  - bio | email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - We have a quick update on the progress of Lubbock's new animal shelter.

Recently, the city council purchased a location near 66th Street and Southeast Loop 289 for the shelter. Previously, council had considered putting the new shelter in Mackenzie Park, but changed plans after protests.

Some of the specifics have not yet been nailed down, but officials say they are making progress.  "The archaeological work, the environmental work, is progressing and then the design of the project would follow, and we're working on the budget and those planning issues at this time," Lubbock Deputy City Manager Tom Adams said. 

The goal is to get a new shelter up and running by 2012.
