Tuesday, at a luncheon at Texas Tech’s McKenzie-Merket Alumni Center, the Lubbock Chamber of Commerce formally unveiled the Imagine Lubbock Together Vision & Strategic Implementation Plan. A number of elected officials were in attendance, including Lubbock Mayor Glen Robertson and city council members Karen Gibson, Jim Gerlt and Latrelle Joy; Lubbock County Commissioners Patti Jones (R), Bill McCay (R) and Mark Heinrich (R); and State Representatives John Frullo (R- Lubbock) & Charles Perry (R- Lubbock).

The implementation plan covers eight different areas: Arts and Culture, Basic and Fundamental Services, Beautification and Image, Downtown, Economic Development, Education, Entertainment and Recreation and Neighborhoods.

In discussing the presentation with KFYO’s Chad Hasty, Imagine Lubbock Together co-chair David Seim said, “I’m really excited. There a lot of things that we can pull together that people have been wanting. I’m excited about this private corporation that is being developed to start doing some projects in downtown.”

The private corporation Seim speaks of is the LDDC, the Lubbock Downtown Development Corporation. Former Lubbock City Councilman Jim Gilbreath serves on the board for the LDDC. Connie Wharton is the chairman of the LDDC. Other board members include Robert Taylor, Mark Bass, Dan Pope, Mark Griffin & Rick Dykes. The LDDC is a for-profit corporation which will work to spur downtown redevelopment.
