North Lubbock residents received good news Wednesday night from their city council representative.
At a town hall meeting at the Maggie Trejo Center, Councilwoman Linda DeLeon announced that 100 new homes will be developed in the Arnett Benson area. The homes will be sold to low and middle income families. DeLeon says there are about 100 vacant lots in the area.
"It's going to raise the economic level for all families in this area and bring more children to the Lubbock Independent School District," DeLeon said.
She predicts construction could begin as early as next month.
