City to Rent Out Moody Depot
Anna Foster reported on the depot in the Temple Daily Telegram.
The Temple City Council officially will consider abandoning 1st Street between Central and Adams avenues and renting the recently relocated Moody Depot to the CentraMod, Inc., Model Railroading Club at its 5 p.m. meeting today in the Municipal Building.
Construction began in February on the city’s downtown welcome plaza and visitors’ center, and soon took over the one-block segment between the two major downtown streets. City Manager Mark Watson said the abandonment of the street had always been discussed as part of the plaza design, and the council’s action would make it official. “We had been talking about it for months and years that we approved the design and there was the implication that we would be abandoning the street,” Watson said.
