About a dozen community members accompanied the members of the Historic Preservation Commission to The Depot to learn more about the proposal regarding the area at their meeting on October 12, 2023. (You can view the application here.)

The HPC returned to the City Building to discuss the application for the certificate of appropriateness, which included:

  • A lawn framing The Depot, with shade trees
  • Landscaping buffer to the east between lawn and parking
  • Blacked out or frosted windows in bathroom areas
  • Lighting like the pedestrian downtown lights
  • Widening the ramp and landing on the south side of building
  • Extending existing parking on east side Repair siding on west and south sides with wood and same colors

Members voted unanimously to approve the request. The Historic Preservation Commission also voted to move ahead with preparing an application to establish a local Historic designation for the portion of Spencer Park north of High Street.
