For the first time, the North and East Lubbock Master Development plan received the public's input. Approximately 200 people showed up at the Civic Center Thursday night to take part in shaping the future of their community.
Among the issues important to residents; no vacant lots, hotels, paved alleys, trees, and drug-free neighborhoods. One of those there, Cheryl McDonald, hopes to leave a legacy for her grandchildren. "Parks, better place for school - so they can learn more. Drug-free, no drugs. And that way they can tell others what we have done when we left them when we left."
The master plan is expected to be in the development phase until November.
