City Council: license awarded to build 1970 tornado memorial

LUBBOCK, Texas -

The city is one step closer to the memorial for victims of the 1970 tornado. 

"Lubbock Experience, Inc." will get the license to start building. The city's already set aside funds from the Central Business District Tax Financing Zone. 

Once the memorial's finished, the city will take over long term care and operations. The memorial will act as a gateway to downtown. 

It will be located on the corner of Ave. Q and Glenna Goodacre, one of the areas most damaged by the tornado. 

The memorial is intended to be completed by the 50th anniversary.
