Athens train depot
(2008-04-15)
(WOUB) - It's been many, many years since a train stopped in Athens but the train depot is still here and members of City Council are concerned that it's properly preserved.

Nancy Bain, for one, is worried that a proposed housing development will detract from the historical site.

Council members want some answers in light of plans by the owner of Athens Station Apartments to expand in the area near the railroad depot.

Also of concern to councilmembers is the zoning...which was discussed during a Planning and Development Committee meeting last night.

The expansion project will have to get city approvals for zoning and as a Planned Unit Development before it can be done.
