Taller buildings coming to downtown Auburn.
Buildings in certain sections of town now able to be up to 75 feet tall instead of just65 feet.
The change approved by Auburn city council tTesday night.
One council member absent. One voted against it.
Opponents of taller buildings say they will destroy the “charm” of downtown Auburn.
Those in favor say allowing taller buildings will attract new developers.
A task force will work with the planning commission and developers to make sure new buildings fit-in with the rest of downtown.
