Newport Train Station Feasibility Study. The planning team is seeking input on their draft alternatives on March 15th, 4:00-7:00 p.m., at Newport’s Old Town Hall, 15 N. Augustine Street.
The Wilmington Area Planning Council (WILMAPCO) is hosting a second public workshop as part of their Newport Train Station Feasibility Study. The planning team is seeking input on their draft alternatives on March 15th, 4:00-7:00 p.m., at Newport’s Old Town Hall, 15 N. Augustine Street.
Newport’s original train station was built in 1908. The station was taken offline in the 1960's, before a fire destroyed it in 2000. This study will determine the feasibility of reopening the station, and develop options for driving transit-oriented growth in the town. The Town of Newport, WILMAPCO, DelDOT, DART, elected officials and local business interests have guided the study.
Everyone is welcome to participate in this public workshop. For more information, please call WILMAPCO at (302) 737-6205 x122, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit www.wilmapco.org/newport.
