Sam Wahl Rec Area on Hold

Council members are waiting to make a decision on the proposed Sam Wahl Recreation Area at Lake Alan Henry. On Monday Councilman Gary Boren asked council members for more time so they could meet with leaders from Kent and Garza counties.

Boren wants to work out differences the council has with landowners about the rules in place to protect lake water. Boren says, "If we don't get that kind of cooperation, I don't feel very good about putting Lubbock's money, $1.3 million as seed money into amenities that will not necessarily benefit us anyway.

City Council will address the issue again on the 26th. At least some of them are threatening to drop the idea of the recreation area altogether if progress can't be made.
