STARS MOVES FORWARD WITH FEASIBILITY STUDY FOR POTTER STREET STATION
STARS has selected the Spicer Group to complete a feasibility study to investigate sites of expansion for the agency, including the potential redevelopment of the historic Potter Street Station into a multi-modal transportation hub and district.
“This study and vision is about more than just a bus station. This study will serve the Saginaw community in many ways, including laying the groundwork on steps toward economic growth, increased access to jobs, redevelopment, and going green,” said Executive Director Glenn Steffens, adding, “We are especially fortunate to have such strong local support as well as support from our Congressman Dan Kildee, who helped secure federal funding to get this ball rolling and kept it rolling. Thanks to his continued support of transit and the Potter Street District vision, we can take this step forward.”
Once started, the feasibility study is expected to take up to one year pending no disruptions or delays. The study will look at the Potter Street Depot and land surrounding that site, the Civitan Center, the current STARS headquarters, and up to two other potential sites in Saginaw.
