Lubbock Shows Signs Of Growth With Annexation History

Annexation is a sign of growth and in the past 10 years, the Lubbock has expanded to the Southwest because of it.

In the 1990's, the city annexed land in South and Southwest Lubbock from Indiana Avenue West to the Wolfforth city limits. This year, the city annexed a portion of land in Northwest Lubbock near Milwaukee and Erskine. At the same time, another portion of land was annexed in North Lubbock between Ursuline, North Frankford and Clovis Road.

On Thursday the Lubbock City Council approved the annexation of land South of 114th Street between Slide Road and Indiana, and South of FM 1585. This would add more than 1,400 acres to South Lubbock.

Also at the same meeting the council voted to annex a separate piece of land in North Lubbock near the airport. It too will require a second reading.

Construction on the Marsha Sharp Freeway is still ahead of schedule. But the current plan would mean the orange cones and speed zones don't disappear until the year 2022, but some other options are being considered.
