Northland Communications obtained permission Tuesday, by a 4-0 vote of Statesboro City Council, to tear down the 1923 wooden railroad depot the cable TV and internet company owns and uses as its local headquarters. This is the latest of several recent permissions the council has issued for tearing down buildings in the downtown historic districts, where such an action requires a finding of necessity by the city. Council received copies of plans for a proposed new Northland Communications building that will replace the depot on the 32 East Vine St. site.
