Dotray: Some things I’ve seen; and a closing
lubbockonline.com / Sun, 23 Nov 2014 05:20:40 +0000

Each week I go through both commercial construction permits that builders receive from the city, as well as site inspections the city does. I like to get them confirmed with the business owners before printing them, but they’re starting to build up (pun intended) on my desk, and both my schedule and the lack of responses have caused me to give up. So, I’m just going to throw some at you that I’ve seen.

The city inspected a plot of land at 7638 82nd St., near Highway 82 almost to Wolfforth, for a Buffalo Wild Wings Restaurant.
