I dont understand why some of the posters are so down on LBK. It provides a very necessary hub of services and supplies for the huge oil field of the Permean Basin. It provides for all the agribusinesses in the south plains and some of the panhandle. People come there for a weekend away, medical care, education.
Im glad to see they're finally adding some tourist attractions. That was long overdue. Lubbock needs more than the windmill museum.

I'm all for Lubbock. The problem is, some of the area's residents seem a bit resistant to growth. Fortunately, they've got good civic leaders in Bart Reagor, the McDougal peeps, and even Coach Bob Knight (who really loves Lubbock). As more residents are coming in, I think you'll see some folks encouraging new things for the area. It also helps when the city has a pro-growth mayor like Dan Pope, and, get this: He's got his own YouTube page.

In the end, the positives can outweigh all the negatives.

I don't think that growth resistance has been a big factor this century. The biggest problem to me is the perception of outsiders (obviously not you, Case). Very little is reported from Lubbock in San Antonio, for example, unless it's a tragic event like the horrible house fire a few days ago, or if a Tech athletics team in a marquee sport makes it deep into the postseason. That may be slowly changing, now that the city is growing at a healthy clip and the tourism industry is showing signs of life.

Hoverstate has decided to expand its reach to Lubbock. They're based in Los Angeles, and it's a digital marketing agency. The company will drop anchor in downtown.

North Lubbock is going to get a new logistics / distribution building.

It's just the latest catalyst to get more businesses to come to the Hub City.

Lubbock's southwest side continues steady growth. At least three new hotels have opened near 62nd and Milwaukee within the last few months. The city has had a nice first quarter this year.
