Cline Shale: Unconventional housing solutions needed for unconventional region
from Lubbock Avalanche-Journal
Increased housing demands because of the oil boom from squeezing the Cline Shale have Scurry County officials taking unconventional action. In November, the Scurry County Commission approved the use of 126 acres of county-owned land for the Maverick West Residential Development. That move made Scurry County the first to subdivide and develop county land for houses. "This is one way the county can get ahead of what is coming," said Scurry County Judge Ricky Fritz. "We are happy that we can be involved and do something to get things moving in a positive direction, rather than sitting back and letting someone else take the lead."
