City Council Approves Annexation

A portion of southwest Lubbock County is just one more vote away from becoming part of the city. On Thursday, the city council approved an annexation of 1,440 acres. The land extends just south of 114th street between Slide and Indiana and south of FM 15-85. That's where developers plan to build an estimated 4,800 homes.

When an area of land is annexed, the land and the people who live there become part of the city. Residents will have to pay city taxes, but in exchange they will also receive these city services.

  • Police response and routine services, which include 9-1-1 calls and patrolling.
  • Fire protection will also be included, in fact there are three stations serving the area.
  • Solid Waste Disposal.
  • Traffic engineering, which includes maintenance of streets and installation of traffic signals and signs.
  • Water and Sewer for home and businesses.
  • Emergency Medical Service.

Residents will also be required to obey city ordinances and codes.
