LEBANON, Tenn. (WKRN) – The Lebanon Planning Commission approved the site plan for a new Music City Star train station at Hamilton Springs on Tuesday.
The Hamilton Springs station will be the Music City Star’s seventh regional rail station.
The Regional Transportation Authority of Middle Tennessee was awarded a $1.6 million federal grant by the Nashville Metropolitan Planning Organization to fund the completion of the station.
Matching funds for the project will come from Jack Bell and Rick Bell of Horn Springs Development, Inc.
“This transit stop is the key component that will help us achieve the ultimate vision of providing a community where residents can live, work and shop in a traditionally designed neighborhood while also having the option to utilize transit to access the surrounding region,” said Jack Bell.
Hamilton Springs is the first community in Middle Tennessee that has planned, designed and constructed a traditional neighborhood “village” with residences and businesses centered around a train station.
