Augusta leaders are ready to move forward on the planned depot project downtown.
The proposed $93-million development is calling for 140 apartments and office space, and now a possible micro brewery.
The final paper work is scheduled to be back before commissioners June 30th however, a commission committee directed the administrator to send a letter to speed it up, so the city can go over it.
“Begin to forward that information to the administrator, so she can vet that process so when they do decide to come to town that we can pretty much do a handshake we can sign the papers, and we can do a press conference ready to go,” says Commissioner Ben Hasan.
Commissioners did ask if the lowering of the river due to replacement of Lock and Dam could impact the depot project.
the City Administrator said that seems likely.
