Consider This: Time for a Lubbock dog park

Last week we told you that the family of Anju Gill has asked the city of Lubbock to join in a public/private partnership to build a dog park in memory of their loved one.

If the city will donate the land, the Gill family will provide the funds to build a dog park across from McAllister Park along Marsha Sharp Freeway.

Anju Gill passed in 2006 at the age of 36. She was, according to her brother Rajeev, a great lover of dogs. The Gill family are long-time residents of Lubbock and known for their many businesses as well as their humanitarian work.

Consider this…the Lubbock City Council should act quickly to cooperate in every way with the Gill family to secure the land and build The Anju Gill Memorial Dog Park.

This type of public/private partnership is exactly how quality of life amenities like this should come about.

We owe a debt of gratitude to the Gill family for its generosity.

I say, "thank you" and "well done."
