Lubbock Proposition A has been passed by popular vote on Nov. 8, 2022.
$200 million from the general obligations bond will be issued for the funding needed to improve the city’s infrastructure. This includes streets, sidewalks, utility line relocations, traffic signals and storm drains. Further developments include the Dunbar-Manhattan Heights neighborhood and heavily populated residential areas in city council districts.
