Wolfforth Still Wants Lubbock Land

A new subdivision near Wolfforth will go ahead as planned, with or without Lubbock City Council approval. On Thursday, the council voted to deny a land swap deal with the city of Wolfforth.Wolfforth wanted the land to build new homes. But because Wolfforth only controls half of that land, they tried to make a deal with Lubbock for the other half. LISD Superintendent Jack Clemmons urged the city to vote against the deal, saying it would take students from his district.

Nevertheless, developer Mike Freyburger says LISD has a separate and selfish agenda. And not even the city of Lubbock can put a stop to his plans. "I don't know what their motivation was. It's obviously a misinformation campaign on behalf of LISD. It's not right," said Mike Freyburger, developer of Preston Manor. "I have a hunch and a feeling that it's all about money and less about children or kids."

Freyburger says the project is on schedule and cannot be controlled by the Lubbock City Council. All 600 acres are in the Frenship School District. Right now, he is taking bids on construction, roads, water and sewer lines. He expects to break ground sometime in January.
