A former golf course in the North Lufkin area will undergo a transformation. The community will learn about the proposed plans for the 170-acre plot on Monday.
The land was purchased by Impact Lufkin, a non-profit group, and has partnered with a team from Texas A&M University.
The proposed master plan includes areas for a strip mall, housing, grocery store, transportation, and a community and arts center among other facilities. Residents of the area will be able to give input on the proposal Monday at a community talk.

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - "(The proposal outlines) where you put the neighborhood center, where will you put a grocery store, where will you put a health clinic, and also we are going have housing, economic development. Different things for the community that's not easily accessible to people that's in North Lufkin." said Robert Shankle, the president of Impact Lufkin.

Shankle also said this will be first of many community talks to get input on the plot. Impact Lufkin said the 170-acre plot cost $935,000.

Community talks happen once a month.
