One Lubbock resident and one Lubbock land owner could be forced to give up their property to the city. The City Council authorized a $61,000 offer for a two story house at 2406 9th Street. The owner, Lane Hardwicke, does not live there but rents out the house. The City Council also authorized a twenty-five hundred dollar offer for land at 2305 6th Street, owned by Alice Marie Kester.
If either owners refuse these offers, the city could legally take both properties by Eminent Domain. Both owners were previously offered several times that much money but they turned it down before the city took the issue to this level.
