The Downtown Redevelopment Commission will unveil its plan for revitalizing the city's central business district at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Lubbock Civic Center.
The 11 member commission was appointed in 2005 by the City Council to develop a strategy to revitalize downtown.
"At one time, downtown Lubbock was the hub for entertainment, commerce and culture," said Jim Cummings, co-chair of the Downtown Redevelopment Commission. "Today, downtown is showing promise again with the energy of the Depot Entertainment District and creation of a new arts district."
The commission raised more than $320,000 to hire EDAW, an international consulting firm specializing in urban design, to develop a long-term redevelopment plan. The firm held three public meetings to gather input on design concepts, green spaces and catalytic projects.
The firm's final recommendations will be presented during the Tuesday evening meeting.
