City Council passes new height ordinance in downtown Auburn

AUBURN, AL (WTVM) - Auburn City Council has passed a new height ordinance in the downtown area.

City officials say the amendment to a zoning ordinance will increase height structure in downtown from 65 feet to 75 feet.

A frontrunner to take advantage of this height change is an Atlanta based company who wants to build a hotel with approximately 130 rooms.

Officials say the development of this area, called the College Edge Overlay District, is something that could take downtown to the next level.
