Thrash Building

The city of Lufkin plans to purchase the Thrash Building and surrounding buildings to create parking for downtown patrons.

The Lufkin City Council will permit city manager Bruce Green to move forward in attempting to purchase the property dividing Shepherd Street and Cotton Square to be razed to create public parking.

“It does not authorize the actual purchase of anything individually. Those kinds of things would be brought back to council at the appropriate time,” he told the council at Tuesday’s meeting.
