Council Votes For McDougal To Lead Downtown Redevelopment

The council voted in favor of the McDougal Company to lead the redevelopment in downtown Lubbock.

The contract is for a maximum of $1.7 million over the course of five years. The city council agreed on the contract that states not to exceed $500,000 on reimbursable expenses. The company will be in charge of the consulting work, planning, and developing guidelines.

Mayor Tom Martin says he is ready for the project to get started. "It is long past time to get started on redeveloping our downtown of Lubbock. We have taken a great step today (Thursday) by hiring the McDougal companies. They were the only developer in the United States that responded to the request twice of the city of Lubbock," said Martin.

The vote was 5 to 2, council members Todd Klein and Paul Beane voted against the timing of the project.
