The City of Gainesville is holding a kick-off event tonight at 6 p.m. for the restoration of Gainesville’s oldest train depot. The Depot Building, which was constructed more than a century ago has been nothing more than a historical location for much of the past 80 years. Florida’s 89.1, WUFT-FM’s Jessica Becerra reports, now the restored building will house a variety of economic and cultural venues.[audio:http://www.wuft.org/media/audio/DepotWRAP.mp3]
As a result of a partnership with Duke Energy, 123 4000 Kelvin light-emitting diode streetlights now light the town’s roads. The new streetlights replaced all existing high pressure sodium amber lights that the town rented.
