The Lubbock City Council voted 7-0 on Thursday to approve a list of 33 people who will decide the future of Lubbock.

These men and women will be members of the Lubbock Comprehensive Plan Advisory Committee, responsible for making decisions about land use as the city grows.

Members were selected to represent a wide range of neighborhoods, industries, professions, and other stakeholders.

Committee members are expected to provide local knowledge and incorporate public input as they coordinate with the planning consultant.

The Council also approved local engineering firm, Freese and Nichols, Inc. as the consultant for the Committee on Thursday night. Freese and Nichols, Inc. will work with the Committee to produce the plan. The Council resolution allows the Committee 12 months to work. 

This Committee will be expected to produce a Comprehensive Plan and Future Land Use Plan and present its recommendations to City Council. 

The Committee will consider a broad range of issues including transportation, infrastructure, housing, parks and economic development as they modify the Plan.
