Council approves property donation for south Lubbock police station

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

Lubbock City Council approved a property donation to build a police substation in south Lubbock during its meeting Thursday. The land is near 140th Street and Indiana Avenue.

This is part of LPD's "community policing" initiative. All the costs beyond the real estate will be taken out of the public safety improvement fund.

The east Lubbock substation will be near Dunbar Lake and 19th Street and MLK Blvd.

Chief Stevens is still scouting a location for north Lubbock. And the west side of town is to be determined. 

Upgrades to Athletic Complex

Council members also approved pouring money into the Berl Huffman Athletic Complex at Yellow House Canyon Park.

The improvements will be made over the next two years, including natural turf, improved roadways, parking, irrigation and new facilities.

A new competitive field sub-plex will be added for championship games next fiscal year, which will host regional, state and national competitions.

Market Lubbock will donate $7 million over the next two years for the improvements. The Huffman Complex opened Labor Day in 1980. Few upgrades have been made to it since.
