"4 For Lubbock" wants a "yes" vote

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - A new action committee called "4 For Lubbock" is encouraging Lubbock residents to approve next month's bond election.

Four different city projects make up the $60.8 million bond election, with the biggest chunk of money - $43 million - slated for street improvements. According to plans, money would be spent to repave 34th Street from University east to Avenue Q and west to Indiana. Also included in the street improvements is a system-wide upgrade to traffic signals and widening Quaker to six lanes to help with projected growth from 98th Street to 114th Street.

"4 For Lubbock" spokeswoman Linda Gaither says these projects are necessary to accommodate future growth, "Taking care of what we have and ensuing and securing our future and that's what this bond election is about."

The group launched a two week awareness campaign Thursday and early voting begins Monday, so expect to see information around the city about the upcoming bond election. If you live in Lubbock County you can vote on 11 state constitutional amendments and if you live in the city you will also be able to vote for the four bonds.

Tonight on NewsChannel 11 at 10 we'll introduce you to the other three bonds - include recreation and safety improvements that total a little less than $20 million, so you can make an informed decision when it comes time to cast your ballot.
