A new community-wide effort has been unveiled.

Lubbock leaders unveiled the new “Imagine Lubbock Together” project, aimed at defining the future of the Hub City, at the Lubbock Chamber of Commerce Friday morning.

The group says that the original community planning effort for this program began in 2011, when some Lubbock business leaders expressed their desire to design and institute a community-wide strategic plan as Lubbock continues to grow.

The Chamber of Commerce and a project steering committee chose ACP Visioning+Planning to consult on the plan last year.

Funding for the effort is being raised by steering committee members.

Public workshops will be held on September 10th through the 12th at Irons Middle School, Coronado High School, and Cavazos Middle School to allow input from the public. No times have been set for these meetings as of yet.

“We ask each of our citizens to communicate their desires for what Lubbock can be – through our interactive website…and through multiple public gathering workshops slated for the fall,” said Connie Wharton, co-chairwoman of the Imagine Lubbock Together steering committee.

The last community-wide effort was completed in 1995.
